These Physics I lecture notes cover an overview of translational and rotational dynamics of a rotating point mass; angular velocity and angular acceleration vectors for fixed axis rotation; angular momentum of a point particle using cross products; right hand rule; angular momentum for fixed axis rotation; torque and the time derivative of angular momentum for a point particle; angular momentum and torque for a system of particles; angular momentum of a rigid body for fixed axis rotation; conservation of angular momentum about a point; and total angular momentum about a fixed point.
