This course is the third of a series of modules that cover calculus-based mechanics. You will explore rotational motion and learn about the concepts of torque and angular momentum. You will learn about the conservation of angular momentum, and use it with other conservation laws to solve complex problems in rotational dynamics.

The complete series of modules is based on the MIT subject 8.01: Physics I, required of all MIT undergraduates.  The modules are:

To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics and Mechanics: Momentum and Energy.
