Quiz 1: Kinematics 1
A thief is surrounded by police at a Needs convenience store. He first bolts to the East at
1.5 m/s for 15 seconds. Upon seeing the police he turns and runs back a distance of 10.0
How to Solve System Dynamics Problems
A system dynamics problem involves two or more bodies (objects) under the influence of
several external forces. The objects may ultimately rest, move with constant velocity, constant
acceleration or some combination o
How to Solve 2 Dimension Relative Velocity Problems
Any two dimension relative velocity problem is an application of vector addition. There are two
scenarios you must learn to identify, when reading a question. Also, it is important to note that

How to Solve Simple Dynamics Problems
Simple dynamics problems involve a single body (object) under the influence of several forces.
The object may ultimately rest, move with constant velocity, constant acceleration or some
combination of these.
