Assignment 2 : Due Date 25 Jan.-2016
1. If the dart is thrown with a speed of 10 m/s, determine the longest possible time when it
strikes the target. Also, what is the corresponding angle at which it should be thrown, and
what is the velocity of the dart

Assignment 1 -Solution
1- A car starts moving from rest at time t = 0. During the first 10 seconds of its motion, its
velocity in km/h is given as a function of time by = 22.8t 0.88t2, where t is in seconds. (a)
What is the cars maximum acceleration in m/

Assignment 3 : solutions
1. Determine the time needed to pull the cord at B down 4 ft starting from rest when a force of
10 lb is applied to the cord. Block A weighs 20 lb. Neglect the mass of the pulleys and cords.
2. The sliders A and B are connected by

Assignment 4 : solutions
1. The 2-lbf block is released from rest at A and slides down along the smooth cylindrical
surface. If the attached spring has a stiffness k = 2 lbf/ft, determine its unstretched length so
that it does not allow the block to leave

Objective:
The meaning of viscosity is the measure of a fluid's resistance to flow. Therefore it is required
for engineers to have the knowledge on viscosity and the value of it because it can have a huge
effect on engineering projects and assignments or

History
Dynamics is a relatively recent subject compared with statics.
The beginning of a rational understanding of dynamics is credited
to Galileo (15641642), who made careful observations
concerning bodies in free fall, motion on an

Kinematics
Kinematics is the branch of dynamics which describes the motion of
bodies without reference to the forces which either cause the motion or
are generated as a result of the motion.

Example
During a test a rocket travels upward at 75 m/s,
and when it is 40 m from the ground its engine
fails. While in motion the rocket is subjected to a
constant downward acceleration of 9.81 m/s2 due
to gravity.
