Pure Rotation - Example 4.2-3


Derive the acceleration of any point on the rigid body shown undergoing pure rotation in terms of the

  • radial distance (r)
  • angular speed (ω)
  • angular acceleration (α)


    We will start the derivation with the n-t coordinate acceleration equation.



    Which of the following equations represents the velocity of a point on a rigid body undergoing pure rotation?
