Unformatted text preview: Newton’s 2 nd Law ( ݀ܘ ݀ݐ ൌ ڮ ሻ and interpret the “force” terms on the righthand side. (c) A particle is released by the person riding on the platform, at a distance r from the center. Its initial velocity in the rotating frame is zero. Describe its subsequent trajectory in both reference frames. 2. A rocket in space is accelerating at 9.8 m/s 2 in the direction of its motion. (a) Repeat Problem 1 (a) and (b) for an observer on the rocket and an inertial observer which is instantaneously moving with the rocket at time t . (b) Use this result to complete Exercise 1.13. 3. Solve the following problems using Maple or Mathematica: (a) 2 + 2 = (b) ∫ e x dx = (indefinite integral) (c) ax 2 + bx + c = 0; solve for x (use the ‘solve’ function). (d) Plot y = sin(10 x ) exp(x 2 ). (e) Plot a sample trajectory for problem 1(c), in the rotating frame....
