Classical Mechanics

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...

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...

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...

Classical Mechanics and Student Handout E2

. 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...

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...

Mechanics Study Guide

1.1 If the Sun should suddenly explode (it can’t) how long would it take for us to notice the event? * According to scientists we have at least 5-6 million years before the sun would ever die out or explode. However if a phenominon like that were to occur there are diffent theories to what might happen. It would take light from the explosion eight minutes to travel the 93 million miles from the sun to the earth. However, Newton's Law of Gravity claims that Earth would suffer an immediate departature...

Mechanics of machines Lab report crank and connecting rod

 Crank and Connecting Rod Introduction- The motion of assemblies is determined by the configuration of links and joints. Using the configurations the operation of rotational and sliding joints are examined and observed. This kind of mechanism is very commonplace in machines. Machines are made up of a number of parts and relative motion between the various parts permits the working of the machine. As the crank is rotated the rod starts moving but the velocity is not uniform. It is greater towards...
