# Kinetics of a Particle: Force and Acceleration

## Equations of Motion: Rectangular Coordinates and Cylindrical Coordinates

For a particle moving relative to an inertial frame, the equation of motion can be written using rectangular components. If motion is restricted to the …

## Equations of Motion: Normal and Tangetial Components

The motion of a particle in a curvilinear path can be described using the normal and tangential components. The normal component is directed along the …

## Normal and Tangetial Components: Problem Solving

Consider a man with a 70 kg mass sitting in a chair. The chair is connected to a pin support via a member BC of length 10 m. If the man is always seated …

## Equation of Motion: Center of Mass

The equation of motion for a single particle can be extended to a system of particles. Consider a system with n numbers of particles. The net force acting …

## Central-Force Motion

The central force system involves a force acting on an object towards a fixed point, typically the origin. This force is determined by the object's …

## Simulation of Human-induced Vibrations Based on the Characterized In-field Pedestrian Behavior

For slender and lightweight structures, vibration serviceability is a matter of growing concern, often constituting the critical design requirement. With …

## Measuring the Interaction Force Between a Droplet and a Super-hydrophobic Substrate by the Optical Lever Method

The goal of this paper is to investigate the interaction force between droplets and super-hydrophobic substrates in the air. A measurement system based on …

## Cryogenic Liquid Jets for High Repetition Rate Discovery Science

This protocol presents a detailed procedure for the operation of continuous, micron-sized cryogenic cylindrical and planar liquid jets. When operated as …
