Rotational Motion & Everything You Need to Know About it

Rotational Motion: Study of Circular Movements

There are plenty of circular movements, i.e. rotations happening around us. For example, a merry-go-round, movement of the tires of a car, and planetary movements.

Rotational Motion:

Rotational motion is a type of motion in which the body spins about an axis. There are three elements of rotational motion: spring elements, inertia and friction elements. It is important in mechanical devices.


Top Things to Learn about Rotational Motion from an online tutor:

  • What is Rotational Motion?
  • Rotation about a Fixed Axis
  • Rotation about an Axis of Rotation
  • Kinematics of Rotational Motion
  • Torque
  • Angular Momentum
  • Moment of Inertia
  • Angular Acceleration
  • Formulas


Rotational Motion Frequently Asked QUestions:

Question 1: What is rotational motion and example?

All particles of a rigid body move in a circular path about a fixed axis of rotation. Angular velocity of all particles is the same.


  • Merry-go-round
  • Ferris Wheel
  • Earth rotating
  • Spinning top

Question 2: What is the difference between rotational motion and circular motion? 

Circular motion: If an object moves in a circular path that motion is known as circular motion. The radius of circular motion is constant as it does not change with time but direction of velocity changes.

Rotational motion: It is a movement within which a body rotates continuously about an axis.

The main difference between rotational motion and circular motion is that in rotational motion, the axis of rotation of a body lies within the body; however in circular motion the body rotates a few fastened axes that lie outside the body.


Question 3: Is every circular motion is rotational motion?

No, every circular motion is not a rotational motion because axes of rotation lie inside the body for rotational motion whereas in circular motion objects rotate about axes that lie outside the body.

For example: Rotation of the planet around the sun is circular motion but rotation of the planet about its own axis is rotational motion.
