Rotational Work

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Rotational work, abbreviated as \(W_r\), is overcoming resistance for a distance by force and then adding torque.

Rotational Work formula

\(\large{ W_r = \tau \; \theta  }\)

Where:

\(\large{ W_r }\) = rotational work

\(\large{ \theta }\)  (Greek symbol theta) = angular position

\(\large{ \tau }\)  (Greek symbol tau) = rotational force
