Lecture TwoKinematics: Study of Displacements & Motion
“ …the various possible types of motion in themselves, leaving out the causes to which the initiation of motion may be ascribed …constitutes the science of Kinematics.”

Kinematics is an organized geometrical description of displacement and motion.
The emphasis here is the fact that displacement andmotion are independent of the material constitution.While we may use the terminology of solid mechanicsthe concepts and the ensuing relationships areindependent of the particular materials involved.
We shall also define the concepts of strain and strainrates as deriving from displacements and motion.
Our cube, for simplicity will have the dimension of unity andwith one edge at the origin.Let
represent the initial Cartesian coordinates in anundeformed body. We consider the transformation,
