Moment of Momentum

## The moment of momentum is a vector

L r p

Also known as angular momentum (the two terms mean basically the same thing, but are used in slightly different situations) Angular momentum has parallel properties with linear momentum In particular, like the linear momentum, angular momentum is conserved in a mechanical system

## Moment of Force (Torque)

The moment of force (or torque) about a point is the rate of change of the moment of momentum about that point

Rotational Inertia

L=rxp is a general expression for the moment of momentum of a particle In a case where we have a particle rotating around the origin while keeping a fixed distance, we can re-express the moment of momentum in terms of its angular velocity

Rotational Inertia

The rotational inertia matrix I is a 3x3 matrix that is essentially the rotational equivalent of mass It relates the angular momentum of a system to its angular velocity by the equation

This is similar to how mass relates linear momentum to linear velocity, but rotation adds additional complexity

Internal Forces

If forces are generated within the particle system (say from gravity, or springs connecting particles) they must obey Newtons Third Law (every action has an equal and opposite reaction) This means that internal forces will balance out and have no net effect on the total momentum of the system As those opposite forces act along the same line of action, the torques on the center of mass cancel out as well

## DYNAMICS OF RIGID BODIES

Rigid Bodies

We treat a rigid body as a system of particles, where the distance between any two particles is fixed We will assume that internal forces are generated to hold the relative positions fixed. These internal forces are all balanced out with Newtons third law, so that they all cancel out and have no effect on the total momentum or angular momentum The rigid body can actually have an infinite number of particles, spread out over a finite volume Instead of mass being concentrated at discrete points, we will consider the density as being variable over the volume

## With a system of particles, we defined the total mass n as:

m
i 1

mi

For a rigid body, we will define it as the integral of the density over some volumetric domain

## Conservation Laws for Systems of Particles

Center of Mass

Consider a system made up of n particles. A typical particle, i, has mass mi, and, at the instant considered, occupies the position ri relative to a frame xyz. We can then define the center of mass, G, as the point whose position vector, rG, is such that, Here, m is the total mass
It is important to note that the center of mass is a property of the system and does not depend on the reference frame used. In particular, if we change the location of the origin O, rG will change, but the absolute position of the point G within the system will not.

Forces
In order to derive conservation laws for our system, we isolate it a little more carefully, identify what mass particles it contains and what forces act upon the individual particles. We will consider two types of forces acting on the particles :

External forces arising outside the system. We will denote the resultant of all the external forces N.
Internal forces due to pairwise particle interactions. This force could arise from gravitation attraction or from internal force due to the connections between particles. It could also arise from collisions between individual particles that, as we have seen, produce equal and opposite impulsive forces that conserve momentum.

## Conservation of Linear Momentum

These ideas also describe the conservation of linear momentum under external and internal collisions. Since individual internal collisions between particles in the system conserve momentum, the sum of their interactions also conserves momentum. If we consider an external particle imparting momentum to the system, it could be treated as an external impulse. Conversely we can consider the particle about to collide to be a part of the system, and include its momentum as part of total system momentum, which is then conserved by Newtons law.

## Angular momentum of a rotating rigid object

L has the same direction as L is positive when object rotates in CCW L is negative when object rotates in CW

## Angular momentum SI unit: kgm2/s

Calculate L of a 10 kg disc when = 320 rad/s, R = 9 cm = 0.09 m

## L = I and I = MR2/2 for disc

L = 1/2MR2 = (10)(0.09)2(320) = 12.96 kgm2/s

## Finding angular momentum

A solid sphere and a hollow sphere have the same mass and radius. They are rotating with the same angular speed. Which one has the higher angular momentum? A) the solid sphere B) the hollow sphere C) both have the same angular momentum D) impossible to determine

Nonisolated System: If a system interacts with its environment in the sense that there is an external torque on the system, the net external torque acting on a system is equal to the time rate of change of its angular momentum.

A sphere mass m1 and a block of mass m2 are connected by a light cord that passes over a pulley. The radius of the pulley is R, and the mass of the thin rim is M. The spokes of the pulley have negligible mass. The block slides on a frictionless, horizontal surface. Find an expression for the linear acceleration of the two objects.

A puck of mass m = 0.5 kg is attached to a taut cord passing through a small hole in a frictionless, horizontal surface. The puck is initially orbiting with speed vi = 2 m/s in a circle of radius ri = 0.2 m. The cord is then slowly pulled from below, decreasing the radius of the circle to r = 0.1 m. What is the pucks speed at the smaller radius? Find the tension in the cord at the smaller radius.

## Example: A merry-go-round problem

A 40-kg child running at 4.0 m/s jumps tangentially onto a stationary circular merry-goround platform whose radius is 2.0 m and whose moment of inertia is 20 kg-m2. There is no friction.
Find the angular velocity of the platform after the child has jumped on.

The Merry-Go-Round

The moment of inertia of the system = the moment of inertia of the platform plus the moment of inertia of the person. Assume the person can be treated as a particle As the person moves toward the center of the rotating platform the moment of inertia decreases. The angular speed must increase since the angular momentum is constant.

It is common to report the moment of inertia of a rigid body in terms of the radius of gyration, k. This is defined as can be interpreted as the root-mean-square of the mass element distances from the axis of rotation. Since the moment of inertia depends upon the choice of axis, the radius of gyration also depends upon the choice of axis. Thus we write for the radius of gyration about the center of mass, and for the radius of gyration about the fixed point O.

## Consider a rigid slab in plane motion.

Results are also valid for plane motion of bodies which are symmetrical with respect to the reference plane.

## Plane Motion of a Rigid Body: DAlemberts Principle

The external forces and the collective effective forces of the slab particles are equipollent (reduce to the same resultant and moment resultant) and equivalent (have the same effect on the body). dAlemberts Principle: The external forces acting on a rigid body are equivalent to the effective forces of the various particles forming the body.

The most general motion of a rigid body that is symmetrical with respect to the reference plane can be replaced by the sum of a translation and a centroidal rotation.

## Axioms of the Mechanics of Rigid Bodies

The forces F and F act at different points on
a rigid body but but have the same magnitude, direction, and line of action. The forces produce the same moment about any point and are therefore, equipollent external forces. This proves the principle of transmissibility whereas it was previously stated as an axiom.

## Problems Involving the Motion of a Rigid Body

The fundamental relation between the forces acting on a rigid body in plane motion and the acceleration of its mass center and the angular acceleration of the body is illustrated in a free-body-diagram equation. The techniques for solving problems of static equilibrium may be applied to solve problems of plane motion by utilizing - dAlemberts principle, or - principle of dynamic equilibrium These techniques may also be applied to problems involving plane motion of connected rigid bodies by drawing a freebody-diagram equation for each body and solving the corresponding equations of motion simultaneously.

Most engineering applications involve rigid bodies which are moving under given constraints, e.g., cranks, connecting rods, and non-slipping wheels. Constrained plane motion: motions with definite relations between the components of acceleration of the mass center and the angular acceleration of the body.

Solution of a problem involving constrained plane motion begins with a kinematic analysis. e.g., given and , find P, NA, and NB. - kinematic analysis yields a x and a y . - application of dAlemberts principle yields P, NA, and NB.

## Angular momentum and Inertia Matrix

Let us suppose that a rigid body is moving in an inertial frame. This motion can be described by the translation motion of its center of mass (cm), together with a rotational motion of the body about some axis through its center of mass.

which simply states that the rate of change of the vector A as observed in the fixed coordinate system (I - "inertial" in our case) equals the rate of change of the vector A as observed in the rotating coordinate system (B - "body" in our case) with angular velocity w, plus the vector product w X A

With the body axes chosen to be principal axes,

## Euler's Moment Equations

for the angular momentum vector h, we can write

This is the well-known Euler's moment equation. In this equation, the subscript "I" indicates a derivative in the inertial frame, while the subscript "B" indicates a derivative in the rotating body frame.

Assuming that XB, YB, ZB are the principal axes of inertia and performing the vector product, we obtain the three scalar equations

These equations are nonlinear, so they do not have an analytical closed-form solution. However, they can be solved under some relieving conditions

## Stability of Rotation for Asymmetric Bodies about Principal Axes

Previously we assumed an axisymmetric body now we want to find the condition for stability about any principle axis with no external moments acting on the body

As no external moments are present so put Mx = My = Mz = O. To find stability for Z-axis take

## Characteristics of Rotational Motion of a Spinning Body

if the body is in rotational motion caused by initial conditions but not under the influence of external moments, then the norm of the angular velocity remains constant, IwI = const

Moreover, since there are no applied moments on the body, M = IhiI =0, means hi = const; the momentum vector is constant in inertial space.

## Nutation of a Spinning Body

the angular momentum and the angular velocity vectors will be resolved into two components, one in the XB-YB plane and another along the ZB body axis (assume once more that the body is symmetric, Ix = Iy): w = Wxy + Wz and h= IxWxy + IzWz Since W and b have components in the same directions (Wxy and Wz), it is evident that h, W, and Wz are coplanar. But since the momentum vector h is constant, its direction is fixed in space. The vector Wxy rotates in the XB-YB body plane, so the angular velocity vector w must also rotate about h;

also fixed in space. Whenever the body ZB axis deviates from the momentum vector h, the body is said to nutate. This nutation forces the spin axis to deviate from the nominal desired direction. Keeping the nutation angle small is one of the important tasks of attitude control systems,

## Attitude Dynamics Equations of Motion for a Non spinning Satellite

The attitude dynamics equations will be obtained from Euler's moment equation present derivations we will allow for the existence of rotating elements inside the satellite - known as momentum exchange devices - and for other kinds of gyroscopic devices. The most common momentum exchange devices are the reaction wheel. the momentum wheel. and the control moment gyro. M is the total external moment acting on the body, which is equal to the inertial momentum change of the system. External inertial moments are products of aerodynamic, solar, or gravity gradient forces, or of magnetic torques or reaction torques produced by particles expelled from the body, such as hydrazine gas or ion particles

## Equations 0/ Motion for Spacecraft Attitude

We shall break down the external torque T into two principal parts: Tc' the control moments to be used for controlling the attitude motion of the satellite; and Td , those moments due to different disturbing environmental phenomena. The total torque vector is thus T = Tc+Td'

Equation 4.8.2 summarizes the full attitude dynamics that must be implemented in the complete six-degrees-of-freedom (6-DOF) simulation necessary for analyzing the attitude control system. Care must be taken in deriving the vector w, since it must be expressed in the correct coordinate frame.
