Rapidsol Dynamics (PU)


The present book provides a comprehensive treatment of the concepts and topics by giving a vast variety of examples fully solved. The entire subject matter has been arranged in a systematic, graded, simple, lucid and exhaustive manner. Each chapter begins with some definitions followed by theorems with complete proofs and solved problems. A large number of notes and remarks have been added for a better understanding of the subject.


Motion of a particle with constant acceleration, acceleration of falling bodies, motion under gravity, motion of a body projected vertically upwards; Newton’s Laws of Motion, Motion of two particles connected by a string, motion along a smooth inclined plane, constrained motion along a smooth inclined plane. Variable acceleration : Simple harmonic motion, elastic string.

Curvilinear motion of a particle in a plane : Definition of velocity and acceleration, projectiles, motion in a circle.

Work, power, conservative field and the potential energy, work done against gravity, potential energy of a gravitational field.

Relative motion, relative displacement, velocity and acceleration, motion relative to a rotating frame of reference.

Linear momentum, angular momentum, conservation of angular momentum, impulsive forces, principle of impulse and momentum, motion with respect to centre of mass of a system of particles, collisions of elastic bodies, loss of energy during impact.
