Principle of Work and Energy: System of Rigid Bodies
Can be applied to each body separately or to the system as a
whole
sum of kinetic energies of all bodies in system
work of all external forces acting on system
Useful in problems involving several bodies connected
together by pins, inextensible chords, etc. because internal
forces do no work &
reduces to the work of external
forces only.

Principle of Impulse and Momentum
For non

centroidal rotation
26
Conservation of Angular Momentum
•
When the sum of the angular impulses pass through
O,
the
linear momentum may not be conserved, yet the angular
momentum about
O
is conserved,
•
Two additional equations may be written by summing
x
and
y
components of momenta and may be used to determine
two unknown linear impulses, such as the impulses of the
reaction components at a fixed point.
•
When no external force acts on a rigid body or a system of rigid
bodies, the system of momenta at
t

is equipollent to the system
at
t
2
. The total linear momentum and angular momentum about
any point are conserved,
