1 ME 242 Dynamics January 26, 2009 Eric Wang Today’s Key Concepts Kinematics • Straight line motion • “Special Cases” 1. Acceleration is constant 2. Acceleration depends on position 3. Acceleration depends on speed Position • Position of Particle P relative to Point O O Velocity • Given the position: • By definition v P = d dt r P / O r P / O = x = ˙ x Strictly speaking: • Should use vectors • Not important for 1D motion, but important for 2D and 3D motion v P = d dt XYZ r P / O r P / O = xi = ˙ x i v P = d dt r P / O r P / O = x = ˙ x Acceleration • Position • Velocity • Acceleration v P = d dt r P / O = ˙ x r P / O = x a P = d dt v P = d 2 dt 2 r P / O = ˙ ˙ x
