There is a similar question that gives a bit of an explanation, but little mathematical proof here: force applied not on the center of mass I would like mathematical proof that shows that the ...
I'm not a physicist and just making some research by the way of creating simple physics simulator, because of that, sorry if this is very dumb question, but I really need help with it. Let's assume ...
If there's a rigid rod in space, and you give some external force perpendicular to the rod at one of the ends for a short time, what happens? Specifically: What dependence does the moment of inertia ...
I have a rigid body with an origin point (at the center of mass). I want to apply a force on a certain point. So what is the force applied to the origin of this rigid body? Description image: ...
