PHET Interactive Simulations: Torque

Free
By
University of Colorado Boulder

Topics

Rotation
Torque
Moment of Inertia
Angular Momentum

Description

Investigate how torque causes an object to rotate. Discover the relationships between angular acceleration, moment of inertia, angular momentum and torque.

Sample Learning Goals

Determine the relationship between the applied force, frictional force (of the brake) and the torque
Write an equation that relates the torque required to the radius at which the force is applied
Describe in your own words the relationship between torque and the moment of inertia
Write an equation that relates the moment of inertia to the angular velocity
Show that Angular momentum is conserved with examples of a bug traveling on a rotating platform.
