CH 12: TORQUE & ROTATIONAL DYNAMICS

TORQUE & ACCELERATION (ROTATIONAL DYNAMICS)

● When a Force causes rotation, it produces a Torque. Think of TORQUE as the _______________ equivalent of FORCE!

FORCE (F) TORQUE (τ)

- Causes linear acceleration (____)

- Relationship between F & ___ _____________

- Remember: This is Newton’s __________________!

- Quantity of Inertia (resistance to a) ______

- Force & Acceleration __________________

- Causes angular/rotational acceleration (____)

- Relationship between τ & ___ _____________

- _________________ of Newton’s _____________!

- Quantity of Inertia (resistance to α) ______

- τ & α _____________________________

EXAMPLE: A solid disc of mass M = 100 kg and radius R = 2 m is free to rotate around a fixed axis that is perpendicular to

it, runs through its center, and is frictionless. You push tangentially on the disc with a constant force F = 50 N, as shown. (a)

Derive an expression for the angular acceleration that the disc experiences. (b) Calculate this angular acceleration.

PRACTICE: TORQUE & ACCELERATION / WEIRD SHAPE (PIANO)

PRACTICE: Suppose that piano has a long, thin bar ran through it (totally random), shown below as the vertical red line, so

that it is free to rotate about a vertical axis through the bar. You push the piano with a horizontal 100 N (blue arrow), causing

it to spin about its vertical axis with 0.3 rad/s2. Your force acts at a distance of 1.1 m from the bar, and is perpendicular to a

line connecting it to the bar (green dotted line). What is the piano’s moment of inertia about its vertical axis?

TORQUE & ACCELERATION / POINT MASS

● Most Torque problems involve Shapes/Rigid Bodies, but Torque works just the same for Point Masses!

EXAMPLE: You spin a small rock of mass M = 2 kg at the end of a light string of length L = 3 m. (a) What Net Torque is

needed to give the rock an acceleration of 4 rad/s2 ? (b) Calculate its tangential acceleration while it spins with 4 rad/s2.

HOW TO SOLVE: TORQUE VS. CONSERVATION OF ENERGY

● Remember: Some Linear motion problems can be solved with ΣF=ma and Motion Equations OR Conservation of Energy:

- For example, there are two ways to find the velocity of the block at the bottom of the plane:

- Likewise, some Rotational motion problems can be solved with Στ =Iα and/or Motion or Conservation of Energy.

- Depending on what you’re being asked and what you’re being given, one method is “better” than the other:

- Generally, you will use Στ =Iα to solve problems asking for (or giving) ______ or ______. - Use Conservation of Energy to solve problems asking for (or giving) ______ or ______. - ALWAYS use Motion Equations if looking for _________ (_____) or need it to solve a problem. - Sometimes you may be asked to use a specific method, in which case you have no choice :(

● Two questions may look almost identical, but require very different methods to solve. For example:

- A yo-yo spins around itself as it falls. Find its acceleration after dropping 2 m _____________________________

- A yo-yo spins around itself as it falls. Calculate its speed after dropping 2 m _____________________________

- A yo-yo spins around itself as it falls. How long does it take to drop 2 m? _____________________________

TORQUE DUE TO WEIGHT

● An object’s weight ALWAYS acts on its _________________________ ( __________ ).

- If an object has _______________ mass distribution, its ___________ is on its geometric ______________.

EXAMPLE: A 20 kg, 4 m long, cylindrical rod has one of its ends fixed to an axis that is mounted on the floor, as shown. The

rod is adjusted to point 37o above the horizontal. Suppose you have mass 80 kg, and stand on the other end of the rod.

Calculate the Net Torque that is produced on the rod, about its axis, due to TWO weight forces acting on it. You may

assume the rod has uniform mass distribution and is fixed in place, so it does not move or rotate.

PRACTICE: NET TORQUE / KIDS ON A SEESAW

PRACTICE: Two kids play on a seesaw that has mass 20 kg, length 3 m, and its fulcrum at its mid-point. The seesaw is

originally horizontal, when the kids sit at the edge of opposite ends (m,LEFT = 25 kg, m,RIGHT = 30 kg). Calculate the Net

Torque from the 3 weights acting on the seesaw, immediately after the kids sit (simultaneously) on their respective places.

PRACTICE: NET TORQUE / HOLDING BARBELL

PRACTICE: A guy standing straight up stretches out his arm horizontally while holding a 60 lb (27.2 kg) barbell.

His arm is 64 cm long and weighs 45 N. Calculate the Net Torque that the barbell and the weight of his arm

produce about his shoulder. You may assume that his arm has uniform mass distribution.

INTRO TO TORQUE

● TORQUE is a “twist” that a Force gives an object around an axis of rotation.

- For example, when you push on a door, it rotates around its hinges.

- When a Force acts on an object, away from its axis, it produces a Torque on it.

- Similar to how Forces cause linear acceleration, Torques cause ________________________ ( ___ ). More later!

● The MAGNITUDE of the Torque is given by τ = _____________ [ ______ ]

- Where r is a vector from the ________________________ to the point where ____________________________.

- Θ is the angle between ______ and ______.

- Torque is max when the Force is the farthest possible and ___________________ (____o) to the r vector.

- To calculate Torque, we’ll use 3 steps: (1) Draw r vector (2) Figure out Θ (3) Plug numbers into equation

EXAMPLE: You push/pull on a 3-m wide door with 10 N in different ways, as shown. Calculate the Torque that each force

produces. F1, F4, F5 act at the edge of the door, F2 half way through it, F3 at the hinge. F5 is directed 60o below the x-axis.

EXAMPLE: TORQUE ON A FISHING POLE

EXAMPLE: When a fish catches your bait, your 2 kg, 3 m long fishing pole is directed at 50o above the +x axis. Calculate

the Torque produced on your fishing pole, about an axis of rotation on your hands, if the fish pulls on it with 40 N directed at

20o below the +x axis.

PRACTICE: TORQUE ON A HORIZONTAL LADDER

PRACTICE: A 4 m-long ladder rests horizontally on a flat surface. You try to lift it up by pulling on the left end of the ladder

with a force of 50 N that makes an angle of 37o with the vertical axis. Calculate the torque that your force produces, about

an axis through the other (right) end of the ladder.

NET TORQUE AND THE SIGN OF TORQUE

● The SIGN of Torque depends on which direction the Force causes the object to spin CW is ____; CCW is ____

- If multiple Torques are produced on an object, we can calculate the NET Torque τNET = _______________

- Torques are ______________, so we use simple addition (not vector addition) to find Net Torque.

EXAMPLE: Two forces act on the same 3-m wide door, as shown. F1 acts on the center of the door, and F2 is directed 30o

above the x-axis. Calculate the Net Torque produced on the door. Use signs (+/–) to indicate the direction of the Torques.

F1 = 50 N

F2 = 50 N
