Title: Chapter 8 Rotational Motion

1
Chapter 8 Rotational Motion
2
Rotational Motion
• In physics we distinguish two types of motion for
objects
• Translational Motion (change of location)
• Rotational Motion (change of orientation)
• Weve mostly discussed translational motion
today we consider rotation.

3
Circles
• Circumference is distance around the perimeter of
the circle.
• Small circle is half the radius so half the
diameter and half the circumference.

Circular Motion
• Rotational Speed Revolutions per second
• Tangential Speed Total distance per second

Same Rotational Speed Different Tangential Speeds
5
Check Yourself
• A pair of wheels are connected by a chain.
• Which wheel has higher
• rotational speed?
• By how much?
• Faster tangential speed on rim?

Bicycles
Notice how gears work on a modern bicycle

Inertia
• Mass is a measure of inertia for linear motion.
• Rotational inertia is similar concept for
rotation.

Rotational Inertia
• Rotational inertia depends on
• Total mass of the object
• Distribution of the mass
• Farther the mass is from the axis of rotation,
the larger the rotational inertia.
• Rotational inertia goes as (mass) x (distance)2

Demo Inertia Sticks
• Two metal pipes of the same mass

Check Yourself
• Which dancer has greater rotational inertia?

Demo Hammer Balance
• When is the hammer easier to balance on your
finger?

13
Demo Drop the Stick
• Two meter sticks stand upright against a wall
one has a hunk of clay on the end.
• Which stick will swing down and hit the floor
first?
• Why?

14
Demo Long Legs
• Long legs have greater rotational inertia than
short legs so long legged animals have a slow
walking stride.

15
Demo Ramp Racing
• The two disks and rods have the same mass but one
has connecting rods near the center while the
other has rods near the rim.
• When rolled down a ramp, which wins the race?

16
Demo Hoop Disk Racing
• Roll a hoop and a disk down a ramp which wins
the race?

17
Torque
• When a force causes a rotation, we identify this
as a torque.
• Torque depends on
• Magnitude of Force
• Direction of Force
• Lever Arm
• (Torque) (Force) x (Lever Arm)

18
Lever Arm
Lever arm is perpendicular distance from axis of
rotation to the direction of the force.
19
Check Yourself
• Identify the lever arm for each wrench.

Which wrench design gives the most torque?

Torque for a Pirouette
• The farther the distance between the feet, the
greater the lever arm so the greater the torque
for creating the rotation.

• In which case are you exerting more torque?

22
Balance of Torques
• Torques clockwise and counter-clockwise balance
in both cases since
• (250 N) x (3 m) (500 N) x (1.5 m)

Her lever arm is 3 meters
23
Center of Mass/Gravity
• Average position of all the mass in an object is
called the center of mass (CM).
• Average position of the weight distribution is
called the center of gravity (CG).
• When gravity is constant these two locations are
the same.

24
Locating Center of Gravity
• Balance an object to find center of gravity

Demo Balance the Can
• If a small amount of water is added to an empty
soda can then the can may be balanced on its
bottom edge.

Balance Ballet
The force of gravity and the support force of the
floor can balance only when a dancers center of
gravity is located above the base of support.

29
Balance Beam
• You tend to hold your arms out when on a balance
beam for two reasons
• Increase your rotational inertia so as to slow
• Allow rapid changes of your center of gravity, to
regain balance

30
Demo Balanced Bird
• Where is the birds center of gravity?

31
Demo Mystery Wheel
• Wheel doesnt roll down hill. How is that
possible?

32
Centripetal Force
• Centripetal means towards the center.

Whenever an object moves along a circular path
there must be a force on that object in the
direction of the center of the circle.
In such a case, the force is said to be
centripetal.
33
Check Yourself
• Object rotates in a circle on the end of a
string. Is there a force on the object?
• What causes the force?
• In what direction is the force?

34
Centripetal Force Examples
35
Demo Around the Ring
• The support force exerted by the wall of the ring
is centripetal.
• Ball moves in a straight line once the force is
removed (ball leaves the ring).

Support Force
36
Magnitude of Centripetal Force
• Magnitude of centripetal force is large when
• Speed is large
• Mass is large

37
Hurricanes
Hurricanes strength (wind speed) depends on how
low the pressure gets in the center.

Demo Loop-the-Loop
If the speed of the ball is large then the
support force of the track is required to keep it
moving in a circle.
Release
Velocity
This is also a good demo for conservation of
kinetic potential energy.
39
Demo Loop-the-Loop
Ball could even circle a loop with a gap, if the
speed was just right so gravity was just the
right amount of centripetal force.
GAP

Centrifugal Force
Insect inside a can rotating in a circle
• When a centripetal force acts on an object, it
appears to the object that there is an outward
force. Call this apparent force the centrifugal
force.

What the insect feels
41
Centrifugal Force
• Can put a bucket full of water over my head
without getting wet by rotating it fast enough.
• Forces exerted on the water by gravity plus
support force of the bucket are centripetal.
• Apparent centrifugal force presses the water into
the bucket.

Centripetal Force
42
• Throw a bowling ball or ball of water overhead.
• As long as the speed is fast enough it will sail
• Gravity by itself supplies the centripetal force.

43
Simulated Gravity
• Centrifugal force could be used to simulate
gravity in a space station.
• With the right rate of rotation a person on the
outer rim would feel as if they stood on the
surface of Earth.
• Scientifically accurate in the movie 2001 A
Space Odyssey (1968)

Demo Spin Out
• Everyday examples of enhanced gravity
• Spin cycle in washer.
• Centrifuge.

45
Angular Momentum
• There are two types of momentum
• (Linear Momentum) (Mass) x (Velocity)
• and
• (Angular Momentum)
• (Rotational Inertia) x (Rotational Velocity)
• Principle of conservation for both types.

46
Demo Skaters Spin
• By moving their outstretched arms and legs inward
an ice skater can decrease their bodys
rotational inertia.
• By conservation of angular momentum, they
increase their angular velocity (spin faster)

Angular momentum is constant since (Rotational

Helicopters Tail
When a helicopters blades start turning in one
direction, by conservation of angular momentum
the body would spin in the opposite
direction. To compensate, the small rotor in the
tail exerts a torque to balance.

Demo Mid-Air Twist
• Stand up and clear space around you.
• When I say Jump!, jump.
• In mid-air Ill point left or right and I want
you to try to turn so you land facing that
direction.

Jump! Turn Land
How can you rotate in mid-air without pushing off
of anything?
