4.1 Circular Motion: Review
ANGLES
Angles can be defined in degrees or in radians. The angle around a circle is 360 or 2 radians. The
basic definition of a radian is that it is the arc length, or distance around the arc of a circle, divided by
the radius,

INTRODUCTION
In the absence of air resistance, buoyancy, aerodynamic lift, or other external forces, all objects near
the surface of the earth freefall with the same acceleration, g = 9.8 m/sec2 = 32.2 ft/sec2. Your obje

3.4 Two-Dimensional Ballistic Motion
INTRODUCTION
THE X AND THE Y OF IT: We live in a three dimensional space. This means that we would
describe coordinates in that space by three points (x, y, z).1 For now we shall consider only
motion in the x-y plane
3.5 Conservation of Energy I
REVIEW
Conservation "Laws" are some of the most important concepts in physics. Principles like
conservation of Energy, conservation of Momentum, Conservation of Charge, and so forth, tell
us what is physically possible and wha
