1. Use 8.27 x 11.69 inches ( A4 size ) paper for homework. Homework should be neatly written on only one side of the paper 2. Present your work in a clear, logical and orderly manner. Being neat generally stimulates clear and orderly thinking, and vice versa. 3. In your homework solution : - draw any necessary diagrams; - list the relevant assumptions and equations used in the analysis; - show all work involved in getting the final answers, and clearly identify all units used in your calculation. - draw a box around your answers. 4. Staple all pages of the assignment together at the upper left corner. 5. Late homework will NOT be accepted. Guideline for Homework
Introduction • Dynamics includes: - Kinematics : study of the geometry of motion. Kinematics is used to relate displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time without reference to the cause of motion. - Kinetics : study of the relations existing between the forces acting on a body, the mass of the body, and the motion of the body. Kinetics is used to predict the motion caused by given forces or to determine the forces required to produce a given motion. Rectilinear motion: position, velocity, and acceleration of a particle as it moves along a straight line. Curvilinear motion: position, velocity, and acceleration of a particle as it moves along a curved line in two or three dimensions.

Rectilinear Motion: Position, Velocity & Acceleration • Particle moving along a straight line is said to be in rectilinear motion . Position coordinate of a particle is defined by positive or negative distance of particle from a fixed origin on the line. •T h e motion of a particle is known if the position coordinate for particle is known for every value of time t . Motion of the particle may be expressed in the form of a function, e.g., 3 2 6 t t x = or in the form of a graph x vs. t .
Rectilinear Motion: Position, Velocity & Acceleration • Instantaneous velocity may be positive or negative. Magnitude of velocity is referred to as particle speed .
