Uniform linear acceleration Introduction This topic is about particles which move in a straight line and accelerate uniformly. Problems can vary enormously, so you have to have your wits about you. Problems can be broken down into three main categories: Constant uniform acceleration Time-speed graphs Problems involving two particles Constant uniform acceleration Remember what the following variables represent: t = the time ; a = the acceleration ; u = the initial speed ; v = the final…
Kinematics Position To specify a position vector you need to specify: • Origin • Distance • Direction If using a 3D right-handed coordinate system with the origin being the reference point for the position vector, it is enough to specify the coordinates x, y and z. For a moving object the position vector is a function of time. Velocity & Acceleration • Velocity is defined as the change in position over a change in time; thus the average velocity is and the instantaneous velocity is • For motion…
A. Introduction Three phase transformers are used throughout industry to change values of three-phase voltage and current. Since three-phase power is the most common way in which power is produced, transmitted, and used, an understanding of how three phase transformer connections are made is essential. In this section it will discuss different types of three phase transformers connections. A three-phase transformer is constructed by winding three single-phase transformers on a single core. These…
Angular Kinematics An object on a point that rotate a fixed axis has circular motion around the same axis. Linear quantities cannot be used for circular motion. This is due to the extended objects rotational motion rather that a particles linear motion. Circular motion, for this reason, is described in terms of the change in angular position. Except for the points on the axis, all the points on a rotating rigid object during any time interval move through the same angle. Many equations describing…
Bond Implied CDS Spread and CDS-Bond Basis Richard Zhou†‡ August 15, 2008 Abstract We derive a simple formula for calculating the CDS spread implied by the bond market price. Using no-arbitrage argument, the formula expresses the bond implied CDS spread as the sum of bond price, bond coupon and Libor zero curve weighted by risky annuities. We show that the bond implied CDS spread is consistent with the standard CDS pricing model if the survival probabilities and recovery are consistent…
THE FIRST PHASE REVOLUTION ○ The first phase of the Philippine Revolution is also called the Filipino-Spanish War. ○ August 1896, when the Spanish authorities discovered Katipunan, an anti-colonial secret organization ○Emilio Aguinaldo (who were from two different factions of Katipunan) won early victories. ○ On April 21, 1898, the United States launched a naval blockade of Cuba, which was the first military action of the Spanish–American…
ASSIGNMENT 2 Video Analysis of Vertical Jump – Due Mon 19th April (4pm) – Turnitin & Hard copy as ususal. The purpose of this assignment is to apply video collection techniques and kinematic analysis to sports performance. Whilst data collection was being carried out in groups, the data analysis and write up of the report must be an INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT and must be completely your own work. Your report should include the following: Report Format Title Page: Include name, student number…
in Lesson 1 is acceleration. An often confused quantity, acceleration has a meaning much different than the meaning associated with it by sports announcers and other individuals. The definition of acceleration is: Acceleration is a vector quantity that is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity. An object is accelerating if it is changing its velocity. Sports announcers will occasionally say that a person is accelerating if he/she is moving fast. Yet acceleration has nothing to…
ACCELERATION: Good afternoon everyone! Our group will discuss about acceleration. But before that, what is acceleration? Acceleration is a vector quantity that is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity. An object is accelerating if it is changing its velocity. People will occasionally say that a person is accelerating if he/she is moving fast. Yet acceleration has nothing to do with going fast. A person can be moving very fast and still not be accelerating. Acceleration…
Acceleration from Gravity on an Incline I. Introduction: Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity of a moving body. Galileo was the first person to actually experiment and examine the concept of acceleration back in the seventeenth century. Acceleration can be determined by calculating the gravity and an incline. An incline is slope that is deviated between horizontal and vertical positions. Gravity is the natural force of attraction towards the center of the earth. Because of this…
