APPLICATIONS Passengers on this amusement ride are subjected to curvilinear translation since the vehicle moves in a circular path but they always remains upright. Does each passenger feel the same acceleration? If the angular motion of the rotating arms is known, how can we determine the velocity and acceleration experienced by the passengers? Why would we want to know these values?
APPLICATIONS (continued) Gears, pulleys and cams, which rotate about fixed axes, are often used in machinery to generate motion and transmit forces. The angular motion of these components must be understood to properly design the system. To do this design, we need to relate the angular motions of contacting bodies that rotate about different fixed axes. How is this different than the analyses we did in earlier chapters?

RIGID BODY MOTION (Section 16.1) We will now start to study rigid body motion . The analysis will be limited to planar motion . For example, in the design of gears, cams, and links in machinery or mechanisms, rotation of the body is an important aspect in the analysis of motion. There are cases where an object cannot be treated as a particle. In these cases the size or shape of the body must be considered. Rotation of the body about its center of mass requires a different approach. A body is said to undergo planar motion when all parts of the body move along paths equidistant from a fixed plane.
PLANAR RIGID BODY MOTION There are three types of planar rigid body motion.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
