## Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics

Introduction
Previously, problems dealing with the motion of particles r were r solved through the fundamental equation of motion, F = ma. Current chapter introduces two additional methods of analysis. Method of work and energy: directly relates force, mass, velocity and displacement. Method of impulse and momentum: directly relates force, mass, velocity, and time.

Sample Problem 13.14(impact of a particle with a massive rigid body)
SOLUTION: Resolve ball velocity into components normal and tangential to wall. Impulse exerted by the wall is normal to the wall. Component of ball momentum tangential to wall is conserved. A ball is thrown against a frictionless, vertical wall. Immediately before the ball strikes the wall, its velocity has a magnitude v and forms angle of 30o with the horizontal. Knowing that e = 0.90, determine the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the ball as it rebounds from the wall. Assume that the wall has infinite mass so that wall velocity before and after impact is zero. Apply coefficient of restitution relation to find change in normal relative velocity between wall and ball, i.e., the normal ball velocity.

Block B having a mass of 9 kg is initially at rest as shown on the upper surface of a 22.5 kg wedge A which is supported by a horizontal surface. A 2 kg block C is connected to block B by a cord, which passes over a pulley of negligible mass. Using computational software and denoting by the coefficient of friction at all surfaces, calculate the initial acceleration of the wedge and the initial acceleration of block B relative to the wedge for values of 0. Use 0.01 increments for until the wedge does not move and then use 0.1 increments until no motion occurs.
