## Chapter (1) - Introduction and Basic Concepts

1. Definitions
Kinematics: The branch of mechanics deals with the motion of a body without
discussing the cause of motion.

Kinetics: The branch of dynamics considering the forces causing the motion.
Dynamics: It is the combination of kinematics and kinetics.
Mechanism is a combination of rigid bodies joined together to provide a specific
absolute motion.

Machine is a device (consisting of fixed and moving parts) which receives energy in some
available form and utilizes it to do some particular type of work.

## Engine is a machine which converts energy from one form to another.

Work: When a force is applied to a body so that it causes the body to move, the force is
said to be doing work. The work done is the product of the distance moved and applied
force in the direction of motion (Figure 1). The work done is measured in Joule (where 1
Joule = 1 Nm), i.e.,

## Work done = Force(F) Distance (d)

Example: Find the work done if the force is 100N and the distance is 4.0m for the shown
systems in Figure (2).

Energy is the capacity to do work which implies movement of a body by the application
of a force, as for example: raising of a weight, walking, moving of a car etc.

Types of Energies
Energy exists in many forms such as thermal energy, chemical energy, mechanical energy,
electrical energy. Examples:
1. An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
2. An internal combustion engine is one example of a machine that converts chemical
energy to mechanical energy.

3. Steam engine and Car engine convert heat energy to mechanical energy.
The mechanical energy can be kinetic energy (T) or potential energy (V).

## Law of Conservation of Energy

The law of conservation of energy states that Energy can be neither created nor
destroyed but is convertible from one form to another.

Power is the rate of doing work and can be expressed mathematically as:
Power (W) = work done (J)/time taken (sec) = force (N) velocity (m/sec)
The unit of the power is the Watt, where 1 Watt = 1 J/sec.

## Example: A body of weight 10kN is to be raised through a height of 8.0m in 5 sec.

Calculate the power required.
Solution:
Work done = force (weight) distance moved = 10kN 8.0m = 80 kNm = 80kJ
Power required = work done/time = 80 (kJ)/5 (sec) = 22 kW.

## Efficiency is the measure of the usefulness of a machine, process or operation.

Efficiency () = power (or work) output/power (or work) input

## 2. Linear Velocity and Acceleration

Linear Velocity is the rate of change of linear displacement of a body with respect to
time. Linear velocity (v) can be expressed as:

Velocity(v) =

dx
x
dt

(m/sec)

## where x is linear displacement,

Linear Acceleration is the rate of change of linear velocity of a body with respect to
the time. Mathematically, the linear acceleration is:

Acceleration (a) =

dv d dx d 2 x

dt dt dt dt 2

(m/sec2)

## 3. Angular Velocity and Acceleration

When a rigid body rotates about a fixed axis all points on the
body are constrained to move in a circular path. Therefore in
any period of time all points on the body will complete the
same number of revolutions about the axis of rotation.

Angular Velocity is the rate of change of angular displacement with respect to time.

The mass moment of inertia about any other parallel axis may be determined by using a
parallel axis theorem. Then the moment of inertia about a parallel axis is given by:

IO IG m d 2
where I G is the moment of inertia of a body about an axis through its centre of gravity,
and d is the distance between two parallel axes.

mass (m) of the system and the velocity (v) of the center of mass.

rate of change of the angular momentum, i.e.,
