**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. ...
