PROJECTILE MOTION, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW Projectile motion is a special case of two- dimensional constant acceleration. It is special because the horizontal or x-component of acceleration can be approximated as zero. The vertical or y-component of a

POTENTIAL ENERGY Potential energy is energy that is a function of position only. A potential energy function U(x, y, z) exists only for conservative forces. A conservative force is a force that does the same amount of work on an object when the object und
FRICTION For Newtonian Mechanics, static friction is a real non-conservative contact force between two rough surfaces that are at rest with respect to each other. Static friction reacts equally and opposite to the net external tangential force which is at
FORCE ANALYSIS External Constant Radial Contact Action/active Real Conservative Internal Variable Tangential Field Reaction/passive Fictitious Non-Conservative
The above list can serve as a reminder and aid when diagnosing force related problems. Whether
ENERGY CONSERVATION The workenergy theorem states that the net work done on a system is equal to the change in kinetic energy of a system. For a system that does not rotate and has constant mass: W net = k = 0.5m (v 2 - v 0 2 ) The most general form of th

VECTOR TUTORIAL What is a vector? For introductory physics, a vector is an entity having the characteristics of magnitude and direction. Since vectors are used throughout physics and engineering, we must learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide ve
