Dynamics Kinematics of particles
Analysis of bodies in motion
1) Kinematics
 study of the geometry of motion
 relate displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time without reference to
the source/cause of motion
2) Kinetics
 study of the relations existing between the forces acting on a body, the
mass of the body, and the motion of the body
 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
R. Ganesh Narayanan 4
Rectilinear motion of particle
Position
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.,
3 2
6 t t x =
or in the form of a graph x vs. t.

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.

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 v
0
, piston
moves and oil is forced through orifices in piston,
causing piston and cylinder to decelerate at rate
proportional to their velocity.
Determine v(t), x(t), and v(x).

The acceleration of slider A is defined by the relation
a= 2k k2v2, where a and v are expressed in m/s2
and m/s, respectively, and k is a constant. The system
starts at time t = 0 with x = 1.5 m and v = 0. Knowing
that x = 1.2 m when t = 0.2 s, determine the value of k.
At t = 0; x = 1.5 m, v = 0
At t = 0.2 s; x = 1.2 m, v = unknown; find k
We know limits for x, t & hence x, t should be related
Integrate this from 0 to t & 0 to v

Kinetics of particles
Newtons first law and third law are sufficient for studying bodies at
rest ( statics) or bodies in motion with no acceleration
study of the relations existing between the forces acting on a body,
the mass of the body, and the motion of the body
When a body accelerates (change in velocity magnitude or direction),
Newtons second law is required to relate the motion of the body to the
forces acting on it
Newtons Second Law: If the resultant force acting on a particle is not
zero, the particle will have an acceleration proportional to the magnitude
of resultant and in the direction of the resultant.
Ist law: A particle remains at rest or continues to move with uniform velocity
(in a straight line with const. speed) if there is no unbalanced force acting on it

Kinetics principles established so far were derived for
constant systems of particles, i.e., systems which neither
gain nor lose particles.
A large number of engineering applications require the
consideration of variable systems of particles, e.g., hydraulic
turbine, rocket engine, etc.
For analyses, consider auxiliary systems which consist of
the particles instantaneously within the system plus the
particles that enter or leave the system during a short time
interval. The auxiliary systems, thus defined, are constant
systems of particles.

(3) General Plane Motion
General plane motion is neither a translation nor a rotation.
General plane motion can be considered as the sum of a
translation and rotation.
Displacement of particles A and B to A

and B

can
be divided into two parts:

Selecting point B as the reference point and solving for the velocity v
A
of end A
and the angular velocity leads to an equivalent velocity triangle.
v

has the same magnitude but opposite sense of v

. The sense of the
relative velocity is dependent on the choice of reference point.
Angular velocity of the rod in its rotation about B is the same as its rotation
about A. Angular velocity is not dependent on the choice of reference point.

Instantaneous Center of Rotation in Plane Motion
Plane motion of all particles in a slab can always be
replaced by the translation of an arbitrary point A and a
rotation about A with an angular velocity that is
independent of the choice of A.
The same translational and rotational velocities at A are
obtained by allowing the slab to rotate with the same
angular velocity about the point C on a perpendicular to
the velocity at A.
The velocity of all other particles in the slab are the same
as originally defined since the angular velocity and
translational velocity at A are equivalent.
As far as the velocities are concerned, the slab seems to
rotate about the instantaneous center of rotation C.
R. Ganesh Narayanan 155
How to obtain instantaneous center of rotation
Fig. 1
Fig. 2
If the velocity at two points A and B are known, the
instantaneous center of rotation lies at the intersection
of the perpendiculars to the velocity vectors through A
and B . (fig. 1)
If the velocity vectors at A and B are perpendicular to
the line AB, the instantaneous center of rotation lies at
the intersection of the line AB with the line joining the
extremities of the velocity vectors at A and B. (fig. 2)
If the velocity vectors are parallel, the instantaneous
center of rotation is at infinity and the angular velocity
is zero. (fig. 1)
If the velocity magnitudes are equal, the instantaneous
center of rotation is at infinity and the angular velocity
is zero. (fig. 2)
R. Ganesh Narayanan 156
The particle at the center of rotation has zero velocity.
The particle coinciding with the center of rotation changes with
time and the acceleration of the particle at the instantaneous center
of rotation is not zero.
The acceleration of the particles in the slab cannot be determined
as if the slab were simply rotating about C.
The trace of the locus of the center of rotation on the body
is the body centrode and in space is the space centrode.
R. Ganesh Narayanan 157
The crank AB has a constant clockwise angular

Motion of a rigid body in plane motion is
completely defined by the resultant and moment
resultant about G of the external forces.
The external forces and the collective effective forces of the slab particles are
equipollent (reduce to the same resultant and moment resultant) and equivalent
(have the same effect on the body).
dAlemberts Principle: The external forces acting on a rigid
body are equivalent to the effective forces of the various
particles forming the body.
R. Ganesh Narayanan 170
The most general motion of a rigid body that is symmetrical with respect to
the reference plane can be replaced by the sum of a translation and a
centroidal rotation.

System of rigid bodies
Motion of several rigid bodies can be analyzed by applying the
principle of impulse and momentum to each body separately.
For problems involving no more than three unknowns, it may be
convenient to apply the principle of impulse and momentum to the
system as a whole.
For each moving part of the system, the diagrams of momenta should
include a momentum vector and/or a momentum couple.
Internal forces occur in equal and opposite pairs of vectors and hence of
impulse of internal forces can be omitted
