Unformatted text preview: Dynamics, MIE 230 Spring, 2012 Problem Set #1 Due: xxx/12 1. HW #1, 2009 6 2. HW #1, 2009 6 3. The motion of a particle is governed the equation 6 2 2 1 2 3 = t t s where s is the position coordinate in feet and t is the time in seconds. Plot the velocity v of the particle against the time t and find the acceleration for t = 0, 2, and 4 seconds. 6 2 2 1 2 3 = t t s ( 29 4 5 . 1 4 2 3 2 = = = t t t t s v 4 3 = = t v a s ft a / 4 = s ft a / 2 2 = s ft a / 8 4 =42 2 4 6 8 10 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 4.5 t, sec v, ft/s 4. In the final stages of a moon landing the lunar module descends under retrothrust of its descent engine to within h = 5 m of the lunar surface where it has a downward velocity of 4 m/s. If the descent engine is cut off abruptly at this point, compute the impact velocity of the landing gear on the moon. Lunar gravity is 1/5 of the earths gravity. s a v v 2 2 1 2 + = 62 . 35 5 5 81 . 9 2 4 2 2 = + = v 9 7 . 5 = v m/s 5. A single stage rocket is launched vertically from rest, and its thrust is programmed to 5....
