# Ch 6: Rotational Motion Principles

This chapter consists of short, fun video lessons that highlight rotation motion principles as well as rotational kinematics. Build your knowledge of these topics in order to get ahead in your physics studies.

## Rotation Motion Principles - Chapter Summary

When you watch the online videos in this chapter on rotational motion principles, you'll get information about rotational quantities and variables as well as angular velocity and acceleration. Explore the momentum and inertia of objects, and learn to understand Newton's first and second laws. You'll also have opportunities to practice solving equations that are related to inertia and momentum. Once you've viewed the video lessons, you could be able to:

• Examine the differences between translational and rotational motion
• Solve problems with rotational kinematics equations and torque
• Identify five kinematics variables
• Define rotational inertia, kinetic energy of rotation and the moment of inertia
• Explore work and power in physics
• Learn how to apply the conservation of momentum
• Distinguish between translational and rotational equilibrium

Experienced teachers outline the fundamentals of rotation motion principles throughout these online video lessons. Watch and take notes in your spare time via your mobile device or desktop computer. Written transcripts reflect the lessons, and video tags allow you to navigate them more quickly. The dashboard area of the lessons contains your recent activities along with course links and quizzes. You can also submit questions here by using the ask-an-expert feature.
