  • Galilei Force Theory

    The invisible being that created the push or pull of an object has been a law of science since the early ages. The first scientists to study this entity was Ancient Greek scientists Archimedes. His theory is now referred to as Archimedes 's principle, or the law of fluid mechanics. It implies that there is force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. He hypothesized this theory while in the bath. Unfortunately his theory only covered fluid mechanics and didn’t elaborate completely on force. However he was one of the first scientists to discover buoyancy and the displacement of fluids. By 17th century Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei…

  • The Influence Of Isaac Newton's Laws Of Motion

    to speed up while the ball is in the air. When a baseball bat strikes a ball, the bat applies a force to the ball and accelerates rapidly after getting struck by the bat, but the ball has to apply a force to the bat. The mass of the ball is compared to the mass of the bat including the batter. With a wooden baseball bat, you can see the amount of force evident as the ball strikes the bat and the bat breaks into pieces. The three laws have been verified many times by countless experiments over…

  • High Jump Biomechanics

    the successful approach and takeoff. The blend of all of these requirements can be difficult for both elite and novice competitors, however Kynard has this skill down to a fine art while I am in need of significant practice (Lundin & Beg, 1993). Considering that the prerequisite for a successful takeoff and flight mechanics is a good execution of the run-up, it is essential that considerable attention be paid to the teaching of this technical component (Schexnayder, 2005). It is at the end of…

  • Linear Differential Concentration And Damping Factors

    Introduction The main objective of this lab is to observe the behavior of a metal block while experiencing uniaxial translation and oscillation in respects to time to calculate the acceleration, spring constant, and damping factor. The experiment was split into two different labs. Part one, the drop test, to take the block to a fixed height and drop it. This would then allow us to calculate the friction force, along with the acceleration of the metal block. Part two, the bounce test, is…

  • Egg Drop Essay

    The Egg-Drop Device Process The process of dropping an egg is more complex than a normal person would believe. The egg-dropping process requires knowledge of history, engineering, and mathematics and physics. To fully understand how an egg drops, the knowledge of the history of physics, the engineering behind a device, and the mathematics and physics of free-fall is needed. Physics originates in its classical form in Ancient Greece. Thales was the first physicist. The theories Thales made gave…

  • Circular Motion Lab Report

    Intuitively we know that the size of an object can have a significant impact on its dynamics. We have seen athletes or animals creating moves beyond our imagination, as shown in Fig. 4.1. This is because their ability in manipulating different parts of their bodies in creating dynamic complexities shown in the images. Certainly we would not be able to ignore the role played by each part of the body if we were to analyze the dynamics of an extended object. However, there is one point, associated…

  • Newton's First Law Of Motion Essay

    1. C Why: according to Newton’s first law of motion, an object that is free from all outside forces travels at a constant velocity, covering equal distances in equal times along a straight-line path, C is true. 2. D Why: not matter an object is still or is in motion, the object has inertia all the time. Inertia is a nature/property of any objects. 3. D Why: the ship is moving at a constant speed, which is in a balanced status. For the athlete, it would be likely to do a long jump on ground.…

  • Comparing Kinetics Of A Rigid Body

    The similarities and differences of Kinetics of a Particle: Work and Energy and Planar Kinetics of a Rigid Body: Work and Energy. Kinetics of a particle: work and energy shows the particle moving when forces are applied to it and produces work and energy. Meanwhile under planar kinetics of a rigid body shows the rigid body on the plane when forces are applied and produces work and energy. There are similarities and differences between both of it. Kinetics of a particle Planar kinetics of a…

  • Terminology Definitions For Spur Gear

    CHAPTER 5 EXPERIMENTATION 5.1 Spur gear terms and concept Fig. 5.1 Terminology definitions for spur gears The radial distance from the pitch circle to the outside diameter is called as addendum. The radial distance between the pitch circle and the root diameter is called as dedendum. The distance of the arc along the pitch circle from one side of a gear tooth to the other is called as circular thickness. The length of the arc of the pitch circle from one point on a tooth to the same…
