Students will learn how to apply the kinematic equations for rotation.
Understand how the transition from slipping to rolling occurs in the context of a thrown bowling ball.
Understand the dynamics of rotating objects in the context of a spinning yo-yo.
Understnad the concept of rotational inertia (moment of inertia) by analyzing the motion of a circus tightrope walker.
Provides a calculus-based explanation of the origin of the the formula v=rw and shows an example of where the equation can be applied.
Calculate the angular velocity or angular acceleration from either the linear velocity/acceleration or other factors.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Kinematics of Rotation.
This study guide provides an overview of circular and rotational motion: centripetal force, discussion of fictitious force, calculating period and frequency, determining the rotational axis, calculating angular quantities, and precession.
