B A doubt from rigid body dynamics

  1. Apr 14, 2016 #1
    in rigid body dynamics is this relation between velocity of centre of mas and velocity of any particle in the rigid body correct?
    vcm = vp + rXω

    is the position vector of the particle with respect to centre of mass

    relations are written in vector form and also tell me how to calculate direction of ω.

    ω=(v × r) /r^2
