What is Dynamics kinematics: Definition and 22 Discussions

Dynamics is the branch of physics developed in classical mechanics concerned with the study of forces and their effects on motion. Isaac Newton was the first to formulate the fundamental physical laws that govern dynamics in classical non-relativistic physics, especially his second law of motion.

    Experimental Design: Pulley and Mass Hangers

    ^ This is my personal drawing of the diagram, I couldn't take a picture of the actual one. The setup is a pulley wrapped with a cord and mass hangers attached to each end. My first thought when approaching this problem was to first determine the rotational inertia of the pulley, then use some...

    Work done running on an inclined treadmill

    Why does it cost roughly the same effort to run against an inclined treadmill as up a hill of the same inclination? That is neglecting the movement of the legs and the bobbing up and down as we run and the wind resistance. I remember being told in school physics that there is no work done unless...
