Rigid Bodies Rigid body: An extended object in which the distance between any two points in the object is constant in time. Examples: sphere, disk … Effect of external forces (the solid arrows represent forces): Both translate and rotate Translate Rotate

Table Problem: Pulley System and Energy
Using energy techniques, calculate the speed of block 2 as a function of distance that it moves down the inclined plane using energy techniques. Let IP denote the moment of inertia of the pulley about its center of mass. Assume there are no energy losses due to friction and that the rope does not slip around the pulley.

Main Idea: Fixed Axis Rotation of Rigid Body
Torque produces angular acceleration about center of mass is the moment of inertial about the center of mass is the angular acceleration about center of mass

Concept Question: Magnitude of Torque Answer

Torque due to Uniform Gravitational Force
The total torque on a rigid body due to the gravitational force can be determined by placing all the gravitational force at the center-of-mass of the object. Grammar, punctuation corrected

Concept Question: Chrome Inertial Wheel
A fixed torque is applied to the shaft of the chrome inertial wheel. If the four weights on the arms are slid out, the component of the angular acceleration along the shaft direction will increase. decrease. remain the same.

Concept Question: Chrome Inertial Wheel Answer
Answer 2. Torque about the central axis is proportional to the component of the angular acceleration along that axis. The proportionality constant is the moment of inertia about that axis. By pushing the weights out, the moment of inertia has increased. If the applied torque is constant then the component of the angular acceleration must decrease.

Worked Example: Moment of Inertia Wheel
An object of mass m is attached to a string which is wound around a disc of radius Rd. The object is released and takes a time t to fall a distance s. What is the moment of inertia of the disc?

Problem Solving Strategy: Two Dimensional Rotation
Step 1: Draw free body force diagrams for each object and indicate the point of application of each force Step 2: Select point to compute torque about (generally select center of mass) Step 3: Choose coordinate system. Indicate positive direction for increasing rotational angle. Step 4: Apply Newton’s Second Law and Torque Law to obtain equations Step 5: Look for constraint condition between rotational acceleration and any linear accelerations. Step 6: Design algebraic strategy to find quantities of interest

Rotor Moment of Inertia

Table Problem: Moment of Inertia Wheel
A steel washer is mounted on a cylindrical rotor . The inner radius of the washer is R. A massless string, with an object of mass m attached to the other end, is wrapped around the side of the rotor and passes over a massless pulley. Assume that there is a constant frictional torque about the axis of the rotor. The object is released and falls.We choose coordinates such that as the mass falls, the rotor undergoes an angular acceleration with a positive component α1 > 0. After the string detaches from the rotor, the rotor coasts to a stop with a component of angular acceleration α2 < 0. Let g denote the gravitational constant. What is the moment of inertia of the rotor assembly (including the washer) about the rotation axis?

Torque and Static Equilibrium

Conditions for Static Equilibrium
Translational equilibrium: the sum of the forces acting on the rigid body is zero. (2) Rotational Equilibrium: the vector sum of the torques about any point S in a rigid body is zero.

Concept Question: Tipping
A box, with its center-of-mass off-center as indicated by the dot, is placed on an inclined plane. In which of the four orientations shown, if any, does the box tip over?

Answer 3. In order to tip over, the box must pivot about its bottom left corner. Only in case 3 does the torque about this pivot (due to gravity) rotate the box in such a way that it tips over.

Problem Solving Strategy: Static Equilibrium
Force: Identify System and draw all forces and where they act on Free Body Force Diagram Write down equations for static equilibrium of the forces: sum of forces is zero Torque: Choose point to analyze the torque about. Choose sign convention for torque Calculate torque about that point for each force. (Note sign of torque.) Write down equation corresponding to condition for static equilibrium: sum of torques is zero

Table Problem: Standing on a Hill
A person is standing on a hill that is sloped at an angle α with respect to the horizontal. The person’s legs are separated by a distance d, with one foot uphill and one downhill. The center of mass of the person is at a distance h above the ground, perpendicular to the hillside, midway between the person’s feet. Assume that the coefficient of static friction between the person’s feet and the hill is sufficiently large that the person will not slip. a) What is the magnitude of the normal force on each foot? b) How far must the feet be apart so that the normal force on the upper foot is just zero? (This is the instant when the person starts to rotate and fall over.)
