Inertial momentum relative to mass center and z-axis can also be calculated so: Iz0 = 2 2 i,j mi mj [(xi xj ) + (yi yj ) /2M ]. 9. Inertial momentum relative to the origin of coordinates: 2 = Ix + Iy + Iz . 10. Physical pendulum: 2 (l) = g/(l + b2 /l), b2 = I/m

(l) = ( l) = g/ = l + b2 /l l l, l 11. Coecients of inertial momentum: cylinder 1/2, solid sphere 2/5, thin spherical shell 2/3, rod 1/12 (about end 1/3), square 1/6. 12. Often applicable conservation laws: energy (elastic, no friction), momentum (sum of external forces is zero; also only in the direction of one axis), angular momentum (if sum of external torques is zero, e.g. there are no external forces or their arm of force is zero; also applicable with respect to one point). 13. Non-inertial reference systems: in them acts additional inertial force ma, centrifugal force m 2 R and Coriolis force (is zero, if body is at standstill; work is zero, because it is perpendicular to velocity). 14. Tilted coordinate system: in case of an inclined plane it is often practical to choose axes along and perpendicular to the plane; gravitational acceleration has then both x- and y- components.

deduced from previous equations [a)c)], d) total energy (for elastic collision); kinetic energy may be maintained only along one axis (elastic collision with friction). Additional equations: e) if sliding stops, then the velocities of collision planes of both impacting bodies were equal in collision point; d) if sliding does not stop, then the momentum is delivered relative to surface normal under angle arctan . 16. Every motion of rigid body can be represented as rotation around the instantaneous center of rotation (in the sense of velocity eld). NB! Distance of the point from the instantaneous center of rotation is not its radius of curvature of trajectory. 17. Tension in a string: in case of a massive string hanging, tensions horizontal component is constant and vertical changes according to the strings mass underneath. Pressure force of a string resting on a smooth surface is determined by its radius of curvature and tension: N = T /R. Analogy: surface tension pressure p = 2/R; to derive, investigate pressure force along diameter. 18. Adiabatic invariant: if parameters of a periodically moving system change very little during one period, then the area of the shape on phase plane (in p-x coordinate system) is very precisely constant (though not absolutely constant). 19. For investigating stability use a) principle of minimum potential energy or b) principle of small virtual displacement. 20. Virial theorem for nite movement: a) F |r|, then K = ; b) F |r|2 , then 2 K = .

2. Coupled oscillators general equation of motion: xi = j aij xj . 3. N coupled oscillators have N natural oscillations i (all oscillators oscillate with same frequency i , but with dierent amplitudes: xj = xj0 sin(i t + j ). General solution is superposition of all natural oscillations and contains optional constants Xi and i :

2. Snells law:
sin 1 / sin 2 = n2 /n1 = v1 /v2 .

3. If refraction index changes continuously, then we imaginarily divide the media into layers of constant n and apply Snells law. Light ray can travel along a layer of constant n, if the requirement of total internal reection is fullled, n = n/r (where r is curvature radius). xj = Xi xj0 sin(i t + j + i ) 4. If refraction index depends only on zi coordinate, then 4. If system can be described by one parameter kx , ky = Const., |k|/n = Const. and it is known, that () = 2 /2 [where 5.
