Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
In this program, animated graphics help to define the concept of angular momentum and to express the relationship between moments and the rate of change of angular momentum. Problems include determining the dimensions needed for an airplane's ailerons and the amount of force required to rotate a toy spaceship. The reasons why a spinning top shows precession are also addressed.
