Appendix 1: Alternative Formulation of Rotational Kinetics

of a Rigid Body in General 2-D Motion

The derivation of the governing equation relating the sum of moments to angular acceleration in

Chapter 8 used the CG as the reference point for moment summation. This resulted in the very

simple relationship

I α ∑ =

G G

M

(8.8)

However, in static cases a point other than the CG is sometimes used to simplify the algebra or

arithmetic in solution. When all accelerations are zero, the zero form of equation (8.8) is valid

regardless of the reference point for the moments. However, in the steps of the earlier

derivation, you saw that several dramatic simplifications occurred, strictly due to the fact that the

CG was selected for the reference point for the terms m ×Δ

i/G i i

r a . Here an alternative form of

equation (8.8) is derived that is applicable when an arbitrary reference point P is selected rather

than the CG.

Alternative Form of Newton’s Second Law for Moments: Taking Moments Relative to an

Arbitrary Reference Point

Again we start with equation (8.1), Newton’s Second Law for forces on the “i

mass repeated below

but now we take the cross product of

Now sum these equations written for every

infinitesimal mass.

On the left hand side, the sum of the moments of the internal forces is zero due to their equal and

opposite character. The remaining moments are simply the moments of the external forces about

where it is understood that the position vectors

On the right hand side, the position vector relationship = +

We have already shown in Chapter 8 that the first summation is simply

summation is m

a . Therefore, if moments are summed about a point other than the CG, the

governing equation becomes

I m α ∑ = + ×

M r a

(8.9)

Sometimes use of this more complex alternative form of the moment-rotation governing equation

will actually result in simpler algebra or arithmetic. However, the author’s experience indicates

that use of the simpler formulation in equation (8.8) normally produces higher success. It is of

some interest to recognize that equation (8.8) is actually a special case of the more general

equation (8.9) in which the point P approaches the CG and the relative position vector

G/P

r

approaches zero.

Alternative Form of the 2-D Angular Impulse-Momentum Equation Accounting for

Rotation and Translation Relative to an Arbitrary Fixed Reference Point

Sometimes in applying the angular impulse-momentum principle, it is helpful to use a point

other than the CG as the reference point. In this case equation (8.9) is integrated over time where

P is the reference point

Appendix 2: Mean Body Weights of Americans:

1960 versus 2002

Avg. Weight (pounds) US Population

1960

2002 Increase

Men (20-74 years) 166.3 191.0 +24.7

Women (20-74 years) 140.2 164.3 +24.1

Boys (15 years) 135.5 150.3 +14.8

Girls (15 years) 124.2 134.4 +10.2

Boys (10 years) 74.2 84.9 +10.7

Girls (10 years) 77.4 88.9 +11.5

Underestimation of passenger weights and carry-on baggage weights can lead to major problems

in operating an aircraft. Likewise, improper placement of passengers and cargo can move the

CG of an aircraft into a position where control is difficult or impossible. In an aircraft, the fuel is

a significant component of the total weight. Burning fuel during flight changes the location of

the CG of the loaded aircraft. The changing location of the CG must be accounted for in

controlling the aircraft.
