• Understanding kinematics

by

Kinematics is very useful in the conceptual design of mechanical systems. The model takes into account the initial body velocities and geometries. Kinematics can assist in assessing a design’s theoretical viability, but designing for the real world involves additional complexity. Many theoretically conceivable designs would be likely to fail without consideration of the materials and…

• Understanding fluid mechanics

Fluid mechanics is a broad study of fluid behavior (liquids, gases, blood, and plasmas) at rest and in motion. It has a wide range of applications today, this field includes mechanical and chemical engineering, biological systems, and astrophysics. Fluid mechanics study particularly the forces that fluid produces. Today you’ll get to know the definition, applications,…

• Things you need to know about polymers

Polymers are common around us today, even though there are wide varieties of different types and different classifications. In a previous post, we explained these various types of plastics as commodity plastics and specialized types. We also saw the application and a few benefits of plastics. I will like you to check it out! Read…

• Electric force – things you must know

Electric force definition, formula, and examples The electric force is an attractive or repulsive interaction between two charged bodies. Just as it is used in our everyday life, the term “force” can be look in different form and areas. In physics, a force in an interaction between two objects, having the ability to change the…

• The Three Newton’s laws of motion

Newton’s Laws of Motion that affect the state of motion Going broad on motion after explaining some terms about it. knowing some laws governing its principles will help to give more clarification on the motion. Sir Isaac Newton, who was an astronomer, physicist and English mathematician. He gave three laws which are proved to be…

• How Force changes the State of Motion

What is the state of motion? State of motion is a situation where an object is on motion due to force exerted to it. The state of motion changes when force is added from another direction. This can cause the object to accelerate, decelerate and even change the direction of motion. Force and Motion work…

• Relationship between Force and Motion

Force and Motion relationship, definition, formula and examples. Physics has exposed to us the different motion of a body. How motion occurs on objects, how an object under motion can be stopped. All these have been explained in my previous article. Well, the answer beyond all these is Force. Force and motion work hand on…

• Understanding Motion

Having an understanding of motion we must deal with the two aspects of change in position. Distance and displacement are terms used to describe changes in position. The difference between these two is that distance is the total path length covered during a move, which can be presented only by magnitude. Whilst, displacement is the…
