  • Torque
  • Moment of Inertia
  • Angular Momentum

Description

Investigate how torque causes an object to rotate. Discover the relationships between angular acceleration, moment of inertia, angular momentum and torque.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Determine the relationship between the applied force, frictional force (of the brake) and the torque
  • Write an equation that relates the torque required to the radius at which the force is applied
  • Describe in your own words the relationship between torque and the moment of inertia
  • Write an equation that relates the moment of inertia to the angular velocity
  • Show that Angular momentum is conserved with examples of a bug traveling on a rotating platform.
