Notes Angular momentum and Kinetic energy of motion about a point Angular momentum is a measure of the rotational motion of an object around an axis or a point. It is defined as the product of the moment of inertia (a ...

Notes Effect of coriolis force on a projectile shot along the earth's surface Let P represent a location on the earth's surface at latitude λ. Take into account a rectangular Cartesian coordinate system with P as the swiftly fixed origin. The system's z ...

Notes Equation of motion of a spherical pendulum using Lagrange's equation of motion. A pendulum in which bob is constrained to move on a sphere rather than on a circle is called spherical pendulum. The position of the bob is located by spherical ...

Notes Euler's theorem A rigid body is capable of two independent motions: rotation and translation. The position and orientation of such a body in motion can therefore be fully described. Three of these ...

Notes Hamilton's variational principle and derivation of Lagrange's equation. Hamilton's principle for a conservative system is stated as follows:This note is taken from Classical mechanics, MSC physics, Nepal.This note is a part of the Physics Repository....

Notes Hamiltonian for a particle in a central force field and obtaining equation of motion of the particle In a central force field, force is always directed towards the centre. Potential energy is conservative so that Hamiltonian represents the total energy.As the motion is always confined in ...

Notes Hamilton-Jacobi Theory Canonical transformations may be used to provide a general procedure for solving mechanical problems. Two methods have been suggested. If the Hamilton is conserved, the solution could be obtained by …

Notes Exclusive OR gate The exclusive OR gate has a high output only when a odd number of inputs is applied. The logic symbol a truth table is shown below.Applications1. Parity Checker:...
