ROTATIONAL MOTION

DEFINITIONS

MOMENT OF INERTIA

ANGULAR MOMENTUM

COMPARISON OF LINEAR AND ROTATIONAL MOTION

DEFINITIONS

The number pi

Many centuries ago it was discovered that if the circumference of any circle were divided by its

diameter, the same number was always obtained, 3.142 (to 3 decimal places).

Angles in radians

Frequency, f = number of revolution per second ( in hertz, Hz). If, for example, the

period T = 0.2 seconds then there are 5 revolutions each second, so we see that:

Example

The turntable of a record player makes 45 revolutions a minute. Calculate:

b. the angular velocity in radians per second

c. the linear velocity of a point 15 cm from the centre

Consider a cork on the end of a string spun at a constant speed on a circular path:

We can infer that a force is required to keep the cork moving at a constant speed along

a circular path because:

the direction of motion of the cork is constantly changing, which means that

its velocity is constantly changing, which means that

it is constantly accelerating, and

a force is required to produce the acceleration (since F = ma)

The force F keeping the cork on its circular path acts along the string towards the

centre, and is called a centripetal (=centre seeking) force. We can show that:

Example

A 200g mass is swung in a circle of one metre diameter at a uniform speed. It makes 5

revolutions in 10 sec. Calculate:

b. the centripetal acceleration (using both equations above for 'a')

c. the centripetal force (using both equations above for 'F')

on the circle, the mass needs a centripetal force (= mv2/r). At the top of the motion,

this force is partly provided by the force of gravity and partly by the tension T in the

string.

As the speed is reduced, mv2/r gets smaller, and so does T (mg is constant)

At a particular value of speed, tension T = 0, and mv2/r = mg

If the speed gets any less, then mg becomes greater than mv2/r, and the mass falls

Example

Calculate the minimum value of speed for an object to be swung in a vertical circle of radius 1.5

m (g = 10ms-2).

The minimum value of v occurs when:

Rounding a bend

When a vehicle rounds a bend on a flat road, the centripetal force required is provided

by friction between the tyres and the road. The friction available on a flat corner determines how

fast the corner can be taken.

Cornering that does not depend on friction can be achieved by banking a road. Suppose that a

car of mass m is moving on a circular path of radius r with a constant speed v:

Suppose that we want the horizontal component of N to provide the necessary centripetal force.

Example

A circular race track has a diameter of 300m. At what angle should the track be banked for a car

to go round it at 100kmh-1, assuming that friction does not contribute to the centripetal force. (use

g = 10ms-2).

Angular acceleration

MOMENT OF INERTIA

No matter what shape the object is, all the individual particles that make it up move

on a circular path at the same angular velocity. For the particle labelled m1:

11

Compare this with the linear case: KE = m v2. This suggests that I is equivalent to mass, m.

Now the mass of a body is a measure of its linear inertia, i.e. its 'built in' opposition to changes in

its linear motion, so we infer that:

The physical significance of the moment of inertia of a body is that it is a measure of the

bodys built in opposition to changes in its rotational motion

Observation

Two cylinders of different materials, but of equal mass and equal radius are released

side by side on an inclined runway. The solid one gets to the bottom first. Why?

Consider the definition of moment of inertia:

The hollow cylinder has its mass concentrated further from the centre (on average), and so the

hollow one has a higher value of I, and so a greater built in opposition to changes in its

rotational motion, and so its rotational acceleration is less than that of the solid cylinder.

12

Example

Calculate I for the following arrangement of masses about the axis O.

Note: Though I is a rotational property, its value does not depend upon the state of

rotation of an object:

The moment of inertia of an object depends upon the sizes of the masses that make up the

object and their distribution about a particular axis

In simple situations such as the above, we can work out the moment of inertia by

taking into account every individual particle. However, suppose that we had an object

made of just 12 grams of carbon. The number of carbon atoms in 12 g of carbon is

defined as Avogadros number, and equals 6.023 x 1023. So the object contains 6.023

x 1023 atoms of carbon, and every one of these produces a term in the definition of I:

On the right hand side there are 6.023*1023 terms added together. To get an idea of what that

represents, suppose that a computer could determine and add together a million terms per second.

It would then take the computer 6.023*1023/106 = 6.023 x 1017 seconds to determine all of the

right hand side of the above equation.

1.9 x 1010 years = 19 000 million years, which is longer than the age of the Universe (since the

Big Bang) which is estimated to be about 12,000 million years ago (according the announcement

by Astronomers in May 1999).

Thus, we could not possibly, in general, expect to determine values of I directly from the

definition. However, for certain objects, particularly symmetric ones, we can determine

expressions for I.

14

A couple, such as represented above, consists of two equal and opposite forces

whose lines of action do not coincide. A couple tends to produce rotation.

Suppose that the above couple rotates the disc through an angle as represented below:

15

16

Notice that:

Thus, we see that torque in the rotational case corresponds to force in the linear case.

Work and kinetic energy

Example

For the last diagram, if:

i) F= 2N and r = 0.5 m and the disc makes 2 revolution, calculate the work done by the couple.

b. calculate the final angular velocity if the initial angular velocity was zero

c. how many revolutions per minute (rpm) does the final angular velocity correspond to?

17

18

ANGULAR MOMENTUM

a) Derivation

We consider an object rotating about an axis through O, the axis being at right angles to the page:

Notice that:

19

20

The total angular momentum of a system remains constant provided that no external

torques act on the system

So, for example, a high-diver decreases his/her moment of inertia by curling up,

resulting in his/her angular velocity increasing. (similarly a skater spins faster by

folding his/her arms)
