Students will learn to calculate Torque in various situations.
Understand the phenomenon of rolling without slipping, even under an applied torque, in the context of a unicycle.
Explore the relationships between angular momentum, torque, and energy in the context of planetary orbits in our Solar System.
Understnad the concept of rotational inertia (moment of inertia) by analyzing the motion of a circus tightrope walker.
Calculate the torque on an object on which a force is being exerted.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Torque.
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.
