Unformatted text preview: 2 On with Dynamics! ME 242 Dynamics Lecture #1 Eric Wang Associate Professor Mechanical Engineering Key ME242 Concepts • Particle, Rigid Body & System • Force & Moment • Mass & Inertia • Kinematics & Kinetics • Coordinate systems & Ref. frames • Momentum & angular momentum • Impulse & angular impulse • Energy • Work Today’s Key Concepts • 3 types of problems • Units • Mass & Inertia • FBD & IRD Type of Problems 1. Force balance (F=ma) – “now” questions 2. Impulse-momentum – Before & after – Collisions/impacts 3. Work-energy – Before & after – Time not involved Type of coordinates 1. Cartesian 2. Polar 3. Path 3 Units • Mass: kg, slug • Weight: N, lb • Force: N, lb • Inertia: kg * m 2 , slug * ft 2 • Some people use lbm and lbf Mass vs. Inertia Units • Mass: kg • Inertia: kg * m 2 (Mass moment of inertia) Q: What is mass? Q: What is inertia? FBD & IRD • FBD= Free Body Diagram • IRD = Inertial Response Diagram FBD = IRD...
