Incluye apéndice e índice. -- Appendix. Moments of inertia of masses
Introduction to dynamics. -- Kinetics of particles: Newton\2019s second law. -- Kinetics of particles: work and energy. -- Kinetics of particles: impulse and momentum. -- Kinematics of rigid bodies. -- Kinetics of rigid bodies: forces and accelerations. -- Kinetics of rigid bodies: work and energy. -- Kinetics of rigid bodies: impulse and momentum. -- Mechanical vibrations.
One of the characteristic of the approach used in these volumes is that the mechanics of particles has been clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of more difficult concepts. in the volume on statics the statics of particles was treated first, and the principle of equilibrium was immediately applied to practical situation involving only concurrent forces. The statics of rigid bodies was considered later, at which time the principle of transmissibility and the associated concept of moment of a force were introduced. In this volume, the same division is observed. The basic concepts of force mass and acceleration of work and energy, and of impulse and momentum are introduced and first applied to problems involving only particles. Thus the students may familiarize themselves whit three basic methods used in dynamics and learn their respective advantages before facing the difficulties associated with the motion of rigid bodies.
