Principle of Linear Impulse and Momentum for a Single Particle

Linear momentum is a vector that shares the same direction as the velocity, while linear impulse measures the effect of a force during the time it acts on …

Principle of Linear Impulse and Momentum for a Single Particle: Problem Solving

Consider a massless pulley system consisting of a wooden box and a cylinder of known masses. Determine the speed of the attached objects at a specific …

Principle of Linear Impulse and Momentum for a System of Particles

Consider a system of particles moving relative to an inertial frame of reference. The equation of motion for such a system can be written as the sum of …

Conservation of Linear Momentum for a System of Particles

In a game of billiards, when the cue ball strikes a stationary ball, it transfers some of its momentum to the stationary ball. The cue ball slows down, …

Impact

Impact occurs when two bodies collide, resulting in impulsive forces being exerted between them. To analyze impact mechanics, consider two colliding …

Types of Impact

Impacts can be classified into various types. A central impact occurs when two objects collide head-on with opposite velocities aligned along the line of …

Impact: Problem Solving

In an experiment during a Mars mission, a rover fires a projectile with an initial velocity that rebounds after impacting the Martian surface. With a …

Angular Momentum

Angular momentum describes the rotational motion of an object. It is defined as the moment of the object's linear momentum about a specific point O. …

Relation Between Moment of a Force and Angular Momentum

In a spinning top, applying a force at a distance from the center creates torque, which changes the angular momentum of the top, causing it to spin. The …

Principle of Angular Impulse and Momentum

The angular impulse and momentum principle explains how forces applied at a distance from the rotational axis can affect an object's angular …

Principle of Angular Impulse and Momentum: Problem Solving

A heavy ball with a known mass is attached to a rod of known length and negligible mass. The system is subjected to a particular torque. Knowing the …

Steady Flow of a Fluid Stream

Consider a control volume, such as a pipe with solid boundaries. As fluid flows within the pipe, it changes direction due to the impulse exerted by the …

Laboratory Drop Towers for the Experimental Simulation of Dust-aggregate Collisions in the Early Solar System

For the purpose of investigating the evolution of dust aggregates in the early Solar System, we developed two vacuum drop towers in which fragile dust …
