What is Two dimension motion: Definition and 13 Discussions
A two-dimensional gas is a collection of objects constrained to move in a planar or other two-dimensional space in a gaseous state. The objects can be: classical ideal gas elements such as rigid disks undergoing elastic collisions; elementary particles, or any ensemble of individual objects in physics which obeys laws of motion without binding interactions. The concept of a two-dimensional gas is used either because:
(a) the issue being studied actually takes place in two dimensions (as certain surface molecular phenomena); or,
(b) the two-dimensional form of the problem is more tractable than the analogous mathematically more complex three-dimensional problem.While physicists have studied simple two body interactions on a plane for centuries, the attention given to the two-dimensional gas (having many bodies in motion) is a 20th-century pursuit. Applications have led to better understanding of superconductivity, gas thermodynamics, certain solid state problems and several questions in quantum mechanics.
the red line is the initial velocity, the grey parabola is the path of the projectile.
hi there...I'm kinda stuck at the part b of this problem. I can do part a with no problem.
can anybody explain to me how to do the differentiation needed to solve part b?? by explain I mean explain the...
1. Problem Statement
A 2 kilogram block rests at the edge of a platform that is 10 meters above level ground.
The block is launched horizontally from the edge of the platform with an initial speed of
