This lesson covers the concept of work energy formulation and rigid body dynamics. It explains the idea of normal reaction in the context of free body motion using a weightless bar pivoted at a point with a weight at the end. The lesson discusses how to calculate the point at which the bar would come to rest given an initial angular velocity. It also explores the difference between a rigid bar and a weightless string, and the angular velocity needed for each to complete a full circle. The lesson further delves into the forces acting on the bar and the relationship between linear and angular acceleration. It concludes by discussing the minimum angular velocity needed for the bar to complete a full circle and remain under tension.

- The work energy formulation and rigid body dynamics can be used to understand the idea of normal reaction in the context of free body motion.
- The forces acting on a weightless bar pivoted at a point with a weight at the end can be calculated using the laws of dynamics.
- The minimum angular velocity needed for the bar to complete a full circle and remain under tension can be determined using the work energy concept.
- The bar would experience a compressive force if the initial angular velocity is less than the minimum required for the bar to complete a full circle.
