Angular Impulse

Chapter 13

෍ 𝜏 𝑡 = 𝐼𝜔𝑓 − 𝐼𝜔𝑖 න 𝜏 𝑑𝑡 = 𝐼𝜔𝑓 − 𝐼𝜔𝑖

Linear and Angular Momentum

• Recall from chapter 8 that linear momentum was defined as

mass x velocity.
𝑝 = 𝑚𝑣

• Angular momentum is defined as moment of inertia x angular

𝐿 = 𝐼𝜔
• Angular momentum is a vector , the direction of the vector is
defined by the right hand rule.
• The units for angular momentum are kg∙m2/s
• Angular momentum describes the quantity of rotation that a
body possesses.
Computing Angular Momentum
The diver shown below is rotating with an angular
velocity (𝜔) of −4.2 r/s and a moment of inertia (I) of 5
kg∙m2, compute the magnitude of the divers angular
Angular Impulse – Angular Momentum Relationship
• The angular impulse – angular momentum relationship is
derived from Newton’s law of angular acceleration:

Στ = Ι𝛼 𝜔𝑓− 𝜔𝑖
𝜔𝑓− 𝜔𝑖 𝑡
Στ = Ι
Στ(t) = I𝜔𝑓 − 𝐼𝜔𝑖
Angular Impulse = change in angular momentum

If you apply a torque over time (angular impulse), it changes the

angular momentum of an object. An angular impulse is
required to make an object spin or stop an object from spinning
An average torque of 3.72 N∙m is applied for a time of t = .9
s to the rigid bar shown below. Determine the final angular
velocity of the bar.
A constant torque of 4.55
N∙m is applied to a rigid bar
with a moment of inertia of
0.8 kg∙m2 and an initial
angular velocity of 0.0 r/s,
determine the final angular

What was the angular

impulse that was applied?
To compute the angular impulse
for a non-constant torque the
torque must be integrated with
respect to time:

න 𝜏 𝑑𝑡 = 𝐼𝜔𝑓 − 𝐼𝜔𝑖
After the torque is applied to the
rigid bar the angular velocity
increases to 5.27 r/s. If the rigid bar
has a moment of inertia of 0.8
kg∙m2 what was the final angular

If the torque was applied for t = 0.9

s, what was the angular impulse?
