Rotational Motion
101110510113041011115Rotational MotionRotational motion plays an important role in nature, and here we investigate the behavior of rigid bodies when they rotate. A rigid body is one that does not deform as it moves. The equations involved here are similar to those that describe linear translational motion.
Angular Variables Consider a planar object rotating about an axis perpendicular to its plane. We describe the position of a point on the object by the coordinates r and θ, where θ
