I'm looking for sources about I guess dynamics subject.

The model I'd like to solve is reduced to a question of:

How does a force applied on a certain point of an object results in both fading rotation around point's axis and transition of the body?

My issue concerns objects on plane surface and I do prefer solution in that simpler matter but I'll be either grateful for pointing me a source or keyword, or any specific directions for the general case.
