Physics 101- Introduction to Mechanics
|March 22- Rotational Dynamics|
There is no new physics here- we're still
talking about constant acceleration, forces, and conservation of energy.
We will simply be using new terminology to describe the circular motion.
We just will be using a different kind of coordinate system.
How would you solve this-
No problem, right? Okay, now try this one:
A wheel has a constant angular acceleration
a= 0.35 rad/ sec2. It starts from rest with an arbitrary
reference line horizontal, at angular position qo=0.
What is the angular displacement of the reference line (and hence the wheel)
at t= 18 sec? What is the wheel's angular velocity at t= 18sec?
