Unformatted text preview: 1 Physics 6A concepts which are important for 6B 0 Newton’s second law: SJ 4.4 o velocity dependent friction: SJ 5.4 model 1 0 Work done by a spring, Hooke’s law: SJ 6.4 o Work—kinetic energy theorem SJ 6.5 0 Power SJ 6.8 0 potential energy: SJ 7.1 o conservative forces and potential energy SJ 7.4 0 potential energy for gravitational force 7.6 o angular position, speed and accelaration SJ 10.1 0 vector product SJ 10.5 o gravitational field SJ 11.1 If you feel unfamiliar with any of these or have forgotten most of 6A, it is a good idea to review these concepts in week 1. A solid understanding of forces and energy is important to understand the material in 6B. On the other hand most of linear momentum, collisions and angular momentum will not be needed in GB. 2 Math concepts that will be important for 6B 0 Take a look at Appendix B for a basic minimum which is needed. 0 For oscillations and waves you should be familiar with the properties of sine and cosine. For example how does the curve f(.r) = Acos(.r + Io) and f (I) = Bsin(1' + 1'0) look like for various values of A, B and 1:0 ? o More advanced concepts like partial derivatives, line and surface integrals will be introduced when we need them and in most cases simplified. ...

    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.
