Kinematics, the part of physics we have studied up to this point, deals with describing motion. We have looked at position, velocity and acceleration as the three basic properties of a particle in motion. In Dynamics, we look at the causes of the motion that we have already studied. In studying these causes, which we shall call forces, we can get a more

Unformatted text preview: complete picture of a given physical situation. Starting with a given set of forces, through dynamics we are able to describe all resulting motion. Dynamics is thus the basis for the rest of the study of classical mechanics, and is applied in every branch of physics....
