Re: Radius of Gyration

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here we go again:
the said material point equivalent to the body mass is rotating (or gyrating, whatever) about the axis, thus circumscribing a circle, and this circle, not surprisingly, has a radius. I'd be more puzzled if someone would call it a distance rather than a radius. So radius it is.
