## Angular Momentum Essay

1430 Words | 6 PagesAngular momentum and its properties were devised over time by many of the great minds in physics. Newton and Kepler were probably the two biggest factors in the evolution of angular momentum. Angular momentum is the force which a moving body, following a curved path, has because of its mass and motion. Angular momentum is possessed by rotating objects. Understanding torque is the first step to understanding angular momentum.Torque is the angular "version" of force. The units for torque are in

1221 Words | 5 PagesTorques Introduction During this lab you will become more familiar with the concepts of torque. The purpose of this lab is to determine if the rotational equilibrium condition, Στ = 0, holds experimentally. Equipment Meter stick (1) - no metal ends Fulcrum (1) Clamps (4) Weight Hanger (1) Mass Set (1) Digital Scale (1) Theory For a body to be in static equilibrium, two conditions have to be met: ΣF = 0 and Στ = 0 where F is force and τ is torque. (The torque is the force times the lever arm

## Angular Projectile Motion Essay

775 Words | 4 PagesAngular projectile motion is used to calculate how far an object with an initial velocity that is projected at an angle to the horizontal will travel horizontally. It can also be used to calculate the maximum height reached by the object and how long it was in the air for. When solving angular projectile motion problems, one must consider the following steps. To begin with one must calculate the horizontal acceleration of the object, keeping in mind that the vertical acceleration is 9.8 m/s2 due

## Acceleration Due to Gravity

2131 Words | 9 PagesAcceleration Due to Gravity Introduction In this lab you will measure the acceleration due to gravity near the earth’s surface with two experiments: first, by determining the time for a steel ball to fall a known vertical distance (free fall), and then second, by measuring the velocity of a cart at various points as it glides down a slightly inclined and nearly frictionless air track (slow fall). Equipment Part 1: Free-Fall • Free-fall apparatus (steel plate, drop mechanism) • Electronic Timer •

## Torque: Kinetic Energy

5318 Words | 22 PagesWHAT IS TORQUE? Torque is a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate. The object rotates about an axis, which we will call the pivot point, and will label 'O '. We will call the force 'F '. The distance from the pivot point to the point where the force acts is called the moment arm, and is denoted by 'r '. Note that this distance, 'r ', is also a vector, and points from the axis of rotation to the point where the force acts. (Refer to Figure 1 for a pictoral

II. Background The Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) is a

## The Effect Of Angular Momentum On Classical Mechanics

1748 Words | 7 Pagesthe importance of Angular Momentum in Classical Mechanics; the total angular momentum of an isolated physical system is a constant of the motion. For example, if a point particle P, of mass m, is moving in a central potential (one which depends only on the distance between P and a fixed point O), the force to which P is subjected is always directed towards O. Its moment with respect to O is consequently zero, and the angular momentum theorem implies that derivative of L (Angular momentum of P with
