OVERALL EXPECTATIONS
ANALYZE,

predict, and explain the motion of selectedobjects in vertical, horizontal, and inclined planes.
INVESTIGATE,

represent, and analyze motion andforces in linear, projectile, and circular motion.
RELATE

your understanding of dynamics to thedevelopment and use of motion technologies.

CHAPTER 3

Planetary and SatelliteDynamics
S
pectators are mesmerized by trapeze artistsmaking perfectly timed releases, glidingthrough gracefu l arcs, and intersecting the paths of their partners. An error in timing and a graceful arccould become a trajectory of panic. Trapeze artistsknow that tiny differences in height, velocity, andtiming are critical. Swinging from a trapeze, theperformer forces his body from its natural straight-line path. Gliding freely through the air, he issubject only to gravity. Then, the outstretched handsof his partner make contact, and the performer isacutely aware of the forces that change his speedand direction.In this unit, you will explore the relationship between motion and the forces that cause it andinvestigate how different perspectives of the samemotion are related. You will learn how to analyzeforces and motion, not only in a straight line, butalso in circular paths, in parabolic trajectories, andon inclined surfaces. You will discover how themotion of planets and satellites is caused, described,and analyzed.
Refer to pages 126–127 before beginning this unit.In the unit project, you will design and build aworking catapult to launch small objects throughthe air.
I
What launching devices have you used, watched,or read about? How do they develop and controlthe force needed to propel an object?
I
What projectiles have you launched? How doyou direct their ﬂight so that they reach amaximum height or stay in the air for thelongest possible time?
