Relationship between Rotational & Linear Momentum
Please imagine you have a chassis (mass M) that is placed on rails (it can move only to one direction i.e axis y). On the chassis centre we have placed a rod that can rotate for half cycle (180 degs) with a high angular velocity and for the rest half cycle it rotates with a ...

Linear Momentum in Rotational motion
It is known that for a mass (m) that moves with velocity (v) the linear momentum is (m)x(v). Now, assume we have a rod of mass (m) and radius (R) that rotates with constant angular velocity (w). Also, isolate only half of the cycle (rotation for 180 degrees). What is the ...
