** Previous:** Rotational Equilibrium and Dynamics

In this Chapter we learn how to apply Newton's laws of motion to rotating, rigid bodies. The major new concepts include torque, which is the rotational analogue of force, center of gravity, and moment of inertia, which is the rotational analogue of mass. The conserved quantities associated with rotational motion are angular momentum and rotational kinetic energy.
