Math Solution of Motion in Two Dimensions

Math Solution of Motion in Two Dimensions Galileo was the first to realize that a moving body can have several separate motions, which are independent of each other. His thinking provides a foundation for Newton's treatment of acceleration and force. A body moving at constant velocity can be described by a sum of velocities in…

Math Solution of Laws Of Angular Motion

In physics, the angular velocity is defined as the rate of change of angular displacement and is a vector quantity (more precisely, a pseudovector) which specifies the angular speed (rotational speed) of an object and the axis about which the object is rotating. The SI unit of angular velocity is radians per second, although it…
