KINETICS OF PARTICLES
Kinetics is the study of the relations between unbalanced forces and the resulting
changes in motion.
There are three general approaches to the solution of kinetics problems:
Direct application of Newtons second law (called the force
Sometimes convenient to use a frame or reference that is moving.
Choice of Coordinate System
The motion of the moving coordinate system is specified with respect to a fixed
Fixed coordinate system is a system whose absol

dU = work done by force ( ) on
particle during displacement ( dr )
dU =F ds cos
dU may be interpreted as
displacement times force component

In addition to the properties of linear impulse and linear momentum, there is a
parallel set of equations for angular impulse and angular momentum.

IMPULSE AND MOMENTUM
A particles momentum G ( m V ) is a vector quantity describing its
tendency to continue in its current path.
The Impulse applied to an object over a time period is equal to the change

CENTRAL FORCE MOTION
When a particle moves under the influence of a force directed toward a fixed
center of attraction, the motion is called central-force motion.
