  • Classical Mechanics

    Recommended Books and Resources • Tom Kibble and Frank Berkshire‚ “Classical Mechanics” • Douglas Gregory‚ “Classical Mechanics” Both of these books are well written and do an excellent job of explaining the fundamentals of classical mechanics. If you’re struggling to understand some of the basic concepts‚ these are both good places to turn. • S. Chandrasekhar‚ “Newton’s Principia (for the common reader)” Want to hear about Newtonian mechanics straight from the horse’s mouth? This is an annotated version

  • Classical Mechanics and Projectile Moves

    When an object (stone‚ spear‚ arrow or bullet) is thrown‚ hurled or shot in the air‚ the object is a PROJECTILE (“Projectile”). The study of projectile is important because it must be realized that they are very much part of man’s daily life then and now. Whether man likes it or not‚ he encounters and uses projectile in his everyday life. Our hunting ancestors threw stones and spears on animals to kill them for their food. In today’s sports‚ balls follow projectile motion such

    Part one: The Lab 1. You will be helping Galileo perform the experiment to determine if objects with different mass fall at the same‚ or different‚ rates in the air and in a vacuum. Before you conduct your experiment‚ you need to form a hypothesis. A hypothesis is a prediction of what you think will happen in the experiment. The hypothesis is a statement that describes “if” a certain set of circumstances are present “then” there will be a specific result that will occur. Record your hypothesis

    . The points lie roughly on a straight line‚ but the line does not pass through the origin. It is because there is some air in the rubber tube and Bourdon gauge not included in V. (3) 2. To keep the syringe air tight. (1) 3. As the temperature should be kept constant‚ the gas is allowed to return to the room temperature after the air is expanded or compressed. (2) 4. To check whether there is significant air leakage during the action of piston. (May consider other answers‚ e.g

  • Kinematics: Classical Mechanics and Velocity Instantaneous Velocity

    Experiment 2: Kinematics of Human Motion Abstract: Kinematics is the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of bodies (objects) and systems (groups of objects) without consideration of the forces that cause the motion. There are four activities done in this experiment. Graphical analysis of human motion‚ where displacement vs time and velocity vs. time were graphed. Graphical analysis of motion where in the 10th seconds the total displacement is 18.75m‚ average velocity

  • Mechanics of Tennis

    Sports Mechanics Of Tennis The hitting and subsequent motion of a tennis ball in playing a forehand topspin Abstract The forehand topspin is one of the primary techniques that is utilised in modern day tennis. It has been used to enhance a player’s overall forehand skills that result in the maximising of a players groundstroke power output. This report will analyse the motions the tennis player and tennis ball undergo‚ the forces acting on the player and the ball and lastly‚ the force transformation
