# KINEMATICS OF PARTICLES

Kinematics of particles

APPLICATIONS

## The cylindrical coordinate

system is used in cases
where the particle moves
along a 3-D curve.

## In the figure shown, the boy

slides down the slide at a
constant speed of 2 m/s.
How fast is his elevation
from the ground. changing
(i.e., what is z )?
APPLICATIONS (continued)

## A polar coordinate system is a 2-D representation of the

cylindrical coordinate system.
When the particle moves in a plane (2-D), and the radial
distance, r, is not constant, the polar coordinate system can
be used to express the path of motion of the particle.
POSITION (POLAR COORDINATES)

## We can express the location of P in polar coordinates as r = rur.

Note that the radial direction, r, extends outward from the fixed
origin, O, and the transverse coordinate, , is measured counter-
clockwise (CCW) from the horizontal.
VELOCITY (POLAR COORDINATES)
The instantaneous velocity is defined as:
v = dr/dt = d(rur)/dt
. dur
v = rur + r dt

## Using the chain rule:

dur/dt = (dur/d)(d/dt)
.
We can prove that dur/d = uθ thus dur/dt = uθ
. .
Therefore: v = rur + ruθ
..
Thus, the velocity vector has two components: r, called
the radial component and is a measure of the rate
. of
change in the length of the radial coordinate. r is called
the transverse component and is a measure of the rate of
motion along the circumference. The speed of the particle
at any given instant is the sum of the squares of both
components and the direction of v is tangent to the path.

v = (r  ) + ( r )

ACCELERATION (POLAR COORDINATES)
The instantaneous acceleration is defined as:
u θ  u r .

a = dv/dt = (d/dt)(rur + ruθ)

expressed as

Assignment
Consider the motion of a particle in a circular trajectory having angular velocity   
and angular acceleration    . In this problem, the circumferential and radial
directions are very similar to the tangential and normal directions. The only difference
is that in polar coordinates, the radial direction points outwards, whereas, in n-t
coordinates, the normal direction always points towards the center of curvature O.
