Curvilinear Motion - motion without rotation

Units and dimensions. Dimensional analysis. Scalars. Motion in one dimension. Vectors: addition, subtraction, resolution into components, unit vectors, dot and cross product. Two-dimensional kinematics: projectile motion, uniform circular motion, relative velocity and reference frames. Inertia: centre of mass, conservation of momentum, force, Newton's laws, impulse. Forces and their applications: fundamental, contact, friction, drag, lift and thrust. Work, energy and power. Conservative and non-conservative forces. Conservation of Energy. Collisions – elastic, inelastic, explosive. Linear momentum, impulse.

Rotational energy, moment of inertia. Static equilibrium. Torque, angular momentum, angular impulse. Rolling without/with slipping. Rotational quantities as vectors. Conservation of Angular Momentum. Gravitation: Newton's Law of Gravity, Kepler’s laws, application to spacecraft orbits. Precession.

Thanks Heaps!
