Rotational Mechanics and Torque With Relation to planes?

  1. May 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For my physics class we need to research on internet how torque and rotational mechanics has to do with planes. I already know a little about torque. I know that torque helps planes turn and spin (pivot). Is there anything else torque has to do with planes? Also, could I have an brief idea about rotational mechanics. I already looked it up, I found great sites about it, but no in relation to planes. Any information would be great. Thanks!

    2. Relevant equations
    Non applicable

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I looked up the answer, but got nothing in relation to planes.

    Hi YodaSan2! Welcome you are to PF! :smile:
    I can't guess what your teacher is thinking about … rotation and torques are concerned with axes, not planes. :confused:

    Anyway, rotational mechanics is basically about τ = Iα (torque = moment of inertia times angular acceleration), the rotational equivalent of F = ma (force = mass times linear acceleration). :smile:
