Introduction
• Dynamics includes:
- Kinematics: study of the geometry of motion. Kinematics is used to
relate displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time without reference to
the cause of motion.
- Kinetics: study of the relations existing between the forces acting on a
body, the mass of the body, and the motion of the body. Kinetics is used
to predict the motion caused by given forces or to determine the forces
required to produce a given motion.

## • Rectilinear motion: position, velocity, and acceleration of a particle as it

moves along a straight line.

## • Curvilinear motion: position, velocity, and acceleration of a particle as it

moves along a curved line in two or three dimensions.

Edition

DYNAMICS
Possible coordinate systems
• The motion of particle P can be described by specifying its coordinates.

## • These coordinates can be measured from fixed reference axes (absolute-

motion analysis) or from moving reference axes (relative-motion analysis)

DYNAMICS
Rectilinear Motion: Position, Velocity & Acceleration
• Particle moving along a straight line is said
to be in rectilinear motion.
• Position coordinate of a particle is defined
by positive or negative distance of particle
from a fixed origin on the line.
• The motion of a particle is known if the
position coordinate for particle is known for
every value of time t. Motion of the particle
may be expressed in the form of a function,
e.g.,
x  6t 2  t 3
or in the form of a graph x vs. t.

Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics
Determination of the Motion of a Particle
• Recall, motion of a particle is known if position is known for all time t.
• Typically, conditions of motion are specified by the type of acceleration
experienced by the particle. Determination of velocity and position requires
two successive integrations.
• Three classes of motion may be defined for:
- acceleration given as a function of time, a = f(t)
- acceleration given as a function of position, a = f(x)
- acceleration given as a function of velocity, a = f(v)

Brake mechanism used to reduce gun
recoil consists of piston attached to barrel
moving in fixed cylinder filled with oil.
As barrel recoils with initial velocity v0,
piston moves and oil is forced through
orifices in piston, causing piston and
cylinder to decelerate at rate proportional
to their velocity.
