Project for Newtons Second Law of Rotational Motion

  1. Feb 18, 2009 #1
    Any help would be appreciated. I'm supposed to make a 20 slide project in power point to depict how angular acceleration, net torque, and moment of inertia are related to one another, as sated in Newton's Second Law of Rotational Motion. I'm supposed to describe the basic concept of the Law and show any calculations. Any ideas or help would be entirely appreciated.... It is supposed to be like a cartoon. Like if a wheel were turning, you would have to show it moving across the screen. Any one willing to assist?

    2. Relevant equations
    Angular acceleration = torque net / Moment of Inertia
    Torque = Moment of Inertia X Angular Acceleration or Force X Distance
    Moment of Inertia = Mass X Radius squared

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The best that I've come up with so far is to draw a bicycle wheel with the bike turned upside down, the wheel in the air, but I'm stuck after that. Any ideas...?
