Planar, rigid object rotating about origin O.Rotational motionLook at one point P:

Arc length s:Thus the angle (angular position) is:

q is measured in degrees or radians (SI unit: radian)Full circle has an angle of 2p radians. Thus, one radian is 360/2p = 57.3Radian degrees2p360p180p/290157.3Define quantities for circular motion(note analogies to linear motion!!)Angular displacement: Average angular speed: Instantaneous angular speed: Average angular acceleration: Instantaneous angular acceleration:

Angular velocity is a vectorRight-hand rule for determining the direction of this vector. rotates through the same angle, has the same angular velocity, has the same angular acceleration.Every particle (of a rigid object):q, w, a characterize rotational motion of entire objectLinear motion with constant linear acceleration, a.

Arc length s:A fly is sitting at the end of a ceiling fan blade. The length of the blade is 0.50 m and it spins with 40.0 rev/min. Calculate the (tangential) speed of the fly.What are the tangential and angular speeds of another fly sitting half way in? Starting from rest it takes the motor 20 seconds to reach this speed. What is the angular acceleration? At the final speed, with what force does the fly (m = 0.01 kg, r = 0.50 m) need to hold on, so that it wont fall off? (Note difference between angular and centripetal acceleration).Black board example 10.2

M = 5 kg; m = 2 kg; a = 1.5 m; b = 1 m Moment of inertia (rotational inertia) of an object depends on: the axis about which the object is rotated. the mass of the object. the distance between the mass(es) and the axis of rotation.

Calculation of Moments of inertia for continuous extended objects

Refer to Table10.2Note that the moments of inertia are different for different axes of rotation (even for the same object)

Again: If there are no non-conservative forces energy is conserved. Rotational kinetic energy must be included in energy considerations!

What is the angular velocity of the pulley at that moment?Black board example 10.6
