# Dependent Motion: Sample Problems & References

• kring_c14
In summary, the speaker apologizes for not being able to post solutions to a test and requests help finding sample problems. They also mention difficulty understanding the material and suggest talking to their professor for clarification. The PF forum requires evidence of effort before providing assistance.

I am so sorry if i didnt post any solutions to this test.. i just can't understand it.. this is supposed to be a self study topic...and this quiz is due tommorow...well,, can any of you recommend some site where there are sample problems like this one?? i found some. but i need more reference... any help would be greatly appreciated...lots of thanks!

kring_c14,

If this is an exam, and you can't understand it, then somewhere the communication process between you and your professor has broken down, and you need to re-establish that contact.

As for us here at PF, we require that you show some evidence of effort before we help you. Please, for your own sake, start by talking to your professor.

As a scientist, it is important to understand that learning can be challenging and it is completely normal to struggle with certain topics. It is great that you are taking the initiative to seek additional resources to help you better understand the material. I would recommend looking for online tutorials or videos that explain the concepts of dependent motion in a way that is easier for you to understand. Additionally, you can try reaching out to your classmates or professor for clarification and study groups can also be helpful in discussing and solving problems together. Remember to take breaks and not get discouraged, as self-study can be difficult at times. Good luck on your quiz tomorrow!

## What is dependent motion?

Dependent motion is a type of motion where the movement of one object is influenced or controlled by the movement of another object.

## What are some examples of dependent motion?

Some examples of dependent motion include a pendulum swinging back and forth due to the movement of its support, a car moving forward due to the rotation of its wheels, and a roller coaster cart moving along a track due to the force of gravity.

## How do you solve problems involving dependent motion?

To solve problems involving dependent motion, you can use equations and principles from kinematics, such as the equations of motion and Newton's laws of motion. It is important to carefully identify all the variables involved and apply the correct equations to find the desired solution.

## What are some common mistakes to avoid when solving problems involving dependent motion?

Some common mistakes to avoid when solving problems involving dependent motion include not considering all the forces and variables involved, using the wrong equations or principles, and not properly organizing and labeling all calculations and units.

## Where can I find additional resources for learning about dependent motion?

You can find additional resources for learning about dependent motion in physics textbooks, online tutorials and videos, and educational websites. You can also consult with a physics teacher or tutor for personalized help and clarification.
