Rolling Torque and Angular Momentum

The Angular Momentum of a Rigid Body Rotating About a Fixed Axis

The Angular Momentum of a Rigid Body Rotating About a Fixed Axis We next evaluate the angular momentum of a system of particles that form a rigid body that rotates about a fixed axis. A shows such a body. The fixed axis of rotation is the: axis, and the body rotates about it with constant angular speed w. We wish …

The Angular Momentum of a System Of Particles

The Angular Momentum of a System Of Particles Now we turn our attention 10 the angular momentum of a system of particles with respect to an origin. The total angular momentum L of the system is the (vector) sum of the angular momenta f of the individual particles. With time, the angular momenta of individual particles may change. …
