Rotation: Moment of Inertia and Torque

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
This module provides an introduction to the dynamics of rotation. The main concepts covered are the Moment of Inertia of a rotating body and Torque. Basic derivations are included to help understand how these physical quantities are related to Newton’s laws of motion. Numerical examples and steps to create MapleSim simulations are included to enhance the learning experience. Keywords & Topics:
Rotation, Moment of Inertia, Torque
Main Topic: Kinematics & Dynamics
