Central impact occurs when the direction of motion off the mass centers of the two colliding particles is along a line passing through the mass centers of the particles. This line passing through the mass centers is called the line of impact, which is perpendicular to the plane of contact. Oblique impact is when the motion of one or both of the particles make an angle with the line of impact. Central Impact Momentum for the system of particles is conserved since during collision, the internal impulses (deformation/restitution impulses) cancel. ???? (???? ) + ???? (???? ) = ????

Because of this, the coefficient of restitution is reliable only when used with data which closely approximates the conditions which were known to exist which measurements of it were made. In general, e has a value between 0 and 1. Elastic Impact (e=1) – If the collision between the two particles is perfectly elastic, the deformation impulse ( ????????????) is equal and opposite to the restitution impulse ( ????????????). Although ∫ ∫ in reality, this can never be achieved, e=1 for an elastic collision. Plastic Impact (e=0) – The impact is said to be inelastic or plastic when e=0. In this case there is no restitution impulse∫( ????????????=0), so that after collision both particles stick together and move with a common velocity. NOTE: The principle of work and energy cannot be used for the analysis of impact problems since it is not possible to know how the internal forces of deformation and restitution vary or displace during the collision. The energy loss during the collision can be calculated by knowing the particle’s velocities before and after collision: ∑???? ????−???? = ∑???? − ???????? ???? If the impact is perfectly elastic, no energy is lost in the collision, whereas if the collision is plastic, the energy lost is a maximum. Oblique Impact – When oblique impact occurs between two smooth particles, the particles move away from each other at velocities with unknown directions and magnitudes. If initial velocities are known, then four unknown are present ((???????? 2,(???????? 2,???? 2∅ 2. Procedure for Analysis  Central Impact o Provided the coefficient of restitution, mass of each particle, and initial velocity of each particle are known, the solution (final velocities) may be obtained by the conservation of momentum and coefficient of restitution. o If the solution yields a negative magnitude, the velocity acts in the opposite sense.  Oblique Impact o If y axis established within plane of contact, x axis along line of impact o Then impulsive forces of deformation and restitution act only in the x direction. o By resolving the velocity or momentum vectors into components along the x and y axes, it is possible to write four independent scalar equations in order to determine the initial and final velocities of each object in the x and y directions.  Momentum is conserved along line of impact, x axis, so velocity in the x direction initially is equal to velocity in the x direction finally.  The coefficient of restitution relates the relative velocity components of the particles along the line of impact (x axis)  If these two equations are solved simultaneously, we obtain the final velocities.  Momentum of particle A is conserved along the y axis, perpendicular to the line of impact, since no impulse acts on A in this direction. Therefore, the velocity of particle A initially is equal to its velocity finally. The same is true for Particle B. Section 15.5 – Angular Momentum Angular Momentum is denoted ???? . ???? Scalar: ???????? ???? = (????)(????????) Angular Momentum about point O about the z-axis = the moment arm (the perpendicular distance from O to line of action) times mass times velocity Vector: ???? ???? ????⃑ ⃑ × ???????? ⃑ Where ???? ⃑ is the position vector drawn from O to the particle. Section 15.6 – Relation between Moment of a Force and Angular Momentum The moments about point O of all forces acting on the particle can be related to the particle’s angular momentum by applying the equation of motion if mass is constant. The moments of the forces about point O can be obtained by performing a cross-product multiplication of each side of this equation by position vector r. ∑???? = ???? ̇???? ∑???? = ???? ̇ where ???? is the time rate of change of linear momentum.

There are three types of rigid-body planar motion:  Translation: this type of motion occurs when a line in the body remains parallel to its original orientation throughout the motion. o When the paths of motion for any two points on the body are parallel lines, the motion is called rectilinear translation. If the paths of motion are curved lines; curvilinear translation.  Rotation about a fixed axis: When a rigid body rotates about a fixed axis, all the particles of the body, except those which lie on the axis of rotation, move along circular paths.  General plane motion: Combination of translation and rotation. o The translation occurs within a reference plane, and the rotation occurs about an axis perpendicular to the reference plane. Section 16.2 – Translation Position: ???? = ????????+ ???? ????⁄???? Velocity: ???? = ???? ???? ???? Acceleration: ???? = ???? ???? ???? Section 16.3 – Rotation about a Fixed Axis When a body rotates about a fixed axis, any point P located in the body travels along a circular path. Angular motion – Only lines or bodies undergo angular motion. Angular position – The angular position of r is defined by the angle θ, measured from a fixed reference line to r. Angular Displacement – Change in angular position, dθ. The vector has magnitude dθ. Since motion is about a fixed axis, the direction of dθ is always along this axis. Direction is determined by the right-hand rule. Angular Velocity – time rate of change in the angular position, ω (omega). Since dθ occurs during an instant of time dt, then ????θ ???? = ???????? Angular Acceleration - time rate of change in the angular velocity, α (alpha) ???? = ???????? ???????? Similarly to our linear equations: ???????????? = ???????????? Equations of Constant Angular Acceleration ???? = ???? +???????? ???? 1 2 ???? = ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ????2 ???? ???? = ???? + 2???? (???? − ???? ) ???? ???? ???? Motion of Point P – As the rigid body rotates, point P travels along a circular path of radius r with center at point O. Position and Displacement – The position of P is defined by the position vec⃑, which extends from O to P. If the body rotates dθ then P will displace ds=rdθ. Velocity – the velocity of P has a magnitude which can be found by dividing ds=rdθ by dt so that ???? = ???????? Both magnitude and direction of ⃑ ????⃑=⃑⃑⃑ ⃑????⃑⃑ Where ????⃑????⃑⃑ is directed from any point on the axis of rotation to pt. P. NOTE: ???? ⃑⃑⃑ ⃑????⃑ ≠ ⃑????⃑⃑ ⃑⃑⃑ Acceleration – The acceleration of P can be expressed in terms of its normal and tangential components where recall ???? = ???????? ???? ???????? ???? 2 ????????= ???? ????????= ???????? The tangential component of acceleration represents the time rate of change in the velocity’s magnitude. If speed of P is increasing, then the tangential acceleration acts in the same direction as velocity, if speed is decreasing, it acts in the opposite direction. 2 ????????= ???? ???? The normal component of acceleration represents the time rate of change in the velocity’s direction. The direction of the normal acceleration is always towards O, the center of the circular path. Vector form: 2 ⃑ = ????⃑????⃑ ????⃑????⃑⃑ =⃑ + ⃑ − ???? ????⃑ If two rotating bodies contact one another then the points in contact move along different circular paths, and the velocity and tangential components of acceleration of the points will be the same; however, the normal components of acceleration will not be the same. Procedure for Analysis – Velocity and Acceleration of a point located on a rigid body, rotating about a fixed axis. Angular Motion  Establish the positive sense of rotation about the axis of rotation and show it alongside each kinematic equation as it is applied.  If a relation is known between any two of the four variables; ω,α,θ, and t, then a third variable can be obtained by using one of the kinematic equations which relates all three variables.  If the body’s angular acceleration is constant, then you can use the related equations to solve for t, ω, θ, etc.  Once the solution is obtained, the sense of θ, ω, and α is determined from the algebraic signs of their numeric quantities. Motion of Point P  In most cases the velocity of P and its two components of acceleration can be determined from the scalar equations relating v to ω, and the components of a to α and ω with both equations including r.  If the geometry of the problem is difficult to visualize, use the vector versions of the previous equations. Section 16.4 – Absolute Motion Analysis A body subjected to general plane motion undergoes a simultaneous translation and rotation. The motion can be completely specified by knowing both the angular rotation of a line fixed in the body, and the motion of a point on the body. Procedure for Analysis The velocity and acceleration of a point P undergoing rectilinear motion can be related to the angular velocity and angular acceleration of a line contained with a body: Position Coordinate Equation  Locate point P on the body using a position coordinated S, which is measured rom a fixed origin and is directed along the straight-line path of motion of point P.  Measure from a fixed reference line the angular position θ of a line lying in the body.  From the dimensions of the body, relate s to θ, s = f(θ), using geometry and/or trigonometry. Time Derivatives  Take the first derivative of s = f(θ) with respect to time to get a relation between v and ω.  Take the second time derivative to get a relation between a and α  In each case, the chain rule must be used. Section 16.5 – Relative-Motion Analysis: Velocity The general plane motion of a rigid body can be described as combination of translation and rotation. ????????= ???? +???????? ????⁄ = ????????+ ???? × ???? ????⁄ ???? ???? The relative velocity equation can be applied either by using Cartesian vector analysis, or by writing the x and y scalar component equations directly. Section 16.7 – Relative –Motion Analysis Acceleration ???? = ???? + (???? × ???? ???? ) − ???? ???????? ???? ???? ⁄???? ⁄???? where the cross product accounts for the tangential acceleration and the omega-squared term accounts for the normal/centripetal acceleration Section 16.8 – Relative Motion Analysis using Rotating Axes We are familiar with the equation: ???? = ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ⁄???? ???????????????? taking the time derivative; we g????t: ????????= ???? ????????
