Lecture 1 Dynamics: 1. Kinematics concerned with the geometric aspects of motion 2. Kinetics - concerned with the forces causing the motion A particle travels along a straight-line path defined by the
Lecture 2 Given: A particle travels along a straight line to the right with a velocity of v = ( 4 t 3 t2 ) m/s where t is in seconds. Also, s = 0 when t = 0. Find: The position and acceleration of the
Lecture 3 Plots of position vs. time can be used to find velocity vs. time curves. Finding the slope of the line tangent to the motion curve at any point is the velocity at that point (or v = ds/dt).

Given: The v-t graph shown.
Find: The a-t graph, average speed,

interval.
Plan: Find slopes of the v-t curve and draw the a-t graph.

Acceleration represents the rate of change in the velocity of a particle.
If a particles velocity changes from v to v over a time increment Dt, the average
acceleration during that increment

Examples
Given: The box slides down the slope described by the equation y = (0.05x2) m, where x
is in meters.
vx = -3 m/s, ax = -1.5 m/s2 at x = 5 m.
Find: The y components of the velocity a

Projectile motion can be treated as two rectilinear motions, one in the horizontal direction
experiencing zero acceleration and the other in the vertical direction experiencing
constant acce

Find: The skiers initial speed vA.
Plan: Establish a fixed x,y coordinate system (in this solution, the origin of
