Students will learn how to solve problems of rolling objects and also of objects that are rolling and sliding.
Understand the phenomenon of rolling without slipping, even under an applied torque, in the context of a unicycle.
Learn about the relationship between rotational and translational kinetic energy, and how each are exchanged when objects roll down inclined ramps.
Explains the physics of an object rolling down a ramp and demonstrates how this works in real life.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Rolling Objects.
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.
