Dynamics of Rotational Motion
Definition of Torque:  = Fl or = Flsinwhere l is the perpendicular distance to from the acting point of the
force to the pivot point and is the angle between arm and force.
Equilibrium condition for rigid bodies:  Fi  0 and  i  0
Moment of inertia: I 

Angular momentum L = I (conservation if torque = 0)
Elastic and Periodic Motion
Elasticity, Stress/Strain = constant = Young’s module. Tensile stress = F/A; Tensile strain = (l-l0)/l0
Hook’s Law F = -kx; the minus sign indicates that the restoring force is against the displacement of the spring.
Period, frequency and angular frequency T = 1/f = 2/and k m 
Simple harmonic motion: x = Asin(t+); A=Amplitude and  the initial phase.
