• Relate rotational dynamics to torque
• Discuss work and work energy theorem with
respect to rotational motion
• Specify rolling motion (center of mass velocity to
angular velocity
• So what causes rotation?

Net external torques cause objects to spin

An external force (or forces) properly placed induced changes
in the angular velocity. This action is defined to be a “torque”

A force vector or a component of a force vector whose “line of
action” passes through the axis of rotation provides no torque

A force vector or the component of a force vector whose “line
of action” does NOT pass through the axis of rotation
provides torque

The exact position where the force is applied matters.
Always make sure the force vector’s line of action contacts the
point at which the force is applied.

Torque increases proportionately with increasing force
Only components perpendicular to r vector yields torque
Torque increases proportionately with increasing distance
from the axis of rotation.

In which of the cases shown below is the torque provided by
the applied force about the rotation axis biggest? In both
cases the magnitude and direction of the applied force is the
same.

Torque is constant along the line of action
Even though case 2 has a much larger radius vector the
torque remains constant.
 Case 1 :  = L F
 Case 2 :  = r F sin  = F r sin 
 Notice that the sin  = sin (p-) = - cos p sin  = sin 
 Case 2 :  = r F sin  = F r sin  = F r sin (p-) = F L
Here  = 135&deg; and |r| = 2&frac12; L so r sin  = 2-1/2 (2&frac12; L ) = L

This is true in general, and hence applies to
rotational motion as well as linear motion.
