1 Big Picture 2.003J/1.053J Dynamics and Control I, Spring 2007 Professor Thomas Peacock 2/7/2007 Lecture 1 Newton’s Laws, Cartesian and Polar Coordinates, Dynamics of a Single Particle Big Picture First Half of the Course Momentum Principles (Force, Vectors) Newtonian Dynamics Second Half of the Course Lagrangian Dynamics (Energy, Scalar) Both give equations of motion. Restrictions: a. Planar (2-D) Dynamics [(3-D) Dynamics 2.032 - Graduate follow on course] b. Linear Dynamics [Nonlinear Dynamics I: Chaos 2.050J - Undergraduate follow on course] Learning Objectives You might comment, “I’ve seen this material before in 18.03, 8.01.” You will use knowledge from previous courses including differential equations and mechanics. After this course, you will be able to: 1. Apply knowledge to new problems 2. Define coordinate system 3. Obtain equations of motion 4. Solve equations Isaac Newton’s (1642 - 1727) Laws of Motion Principia, Chapter 1, in Cambridge Trinity College. Originally in Latin.
