4. Equation of Rotational Motion of Rigid Body

01

When a rigid body rotates about a fixed axis, all particles of the body except those lying on the axis of rotation move in circular paths. By applying Newton's second law of motion to individual particles, we can arrive at the rotational analogue of F = ma. What is torque of a force? What is angular acceleration of a rotating body? What is its moment of inertia? How do these quantities relate to each other? The video lecture “Equation of Rotational Motion” answers some of these questions, and more.

13. Angular Momentum of a Particle and its Relation with Torque

01

There is close similarity between equations of rectilinear motion and those of pure rotation. Hence it is only expected that, just like force is related to linear momentum, torque must be related to a similar quantity named angular momentum. What exactly is angular momentum of a particle? What is angular momentum of a system of particles? What is angular impulse? What is the relation between torque and angular momentum? The video lecture “Torque and angular momentum” answers some of these questions, and more.

01

The principle of angular momentum conservation follows from the rotational analogue of impulse-momentum theorem. How can a boy sitting on a pivoted stool gain angular speed? Why does a springboard diver curl up in mid-air? What is the secret of a child riding higher and higher on a swing? The video lecture “Principle of Conservation of Angular Momentum” answers some of these questions, and more.

22. Rolling Motion of Rigid Body on Horizontal Floor

01

The rolling motion of a round body is the combination of two motions: translation of the centre of mass and rotation about a moving axis through the centre of mass. Suppose a body is released on a rough floor with a linear velocity only. How does the linear velocity change with time? How does the angular velocity change in time? When does the body stop slipping on the floor? When does it stop rolling altogether? Will the results be the same for a sphere and a cylinder? The video lecture “Rolling Body on Horizontal Floor” answers some of these questions, and more.
