Physics 310 Classical Mechanics Spring 2000Ijiri Handout 3 Equations of motion for simple systems Many of the problems of interest for this class involve nding the equations of motion Force approaches In solving for the equations of motion you can often make progress by considering the functional dependence of the forces Is F zero then a is zero V is constant r Vt const Is F a constant then a is a constant a Fm just like problems with gravity If F varies what does it depend on time t velocity v position r or in one direction X In this case consider if any of the different representations below make more sense in light of the functional dependence of the forces 61 F p dt Note that these may not all be relevant or necessarily true depending on the particular system in question Consider for instance problems with varying mass Energy approaches An alternative approach is to recall conservation theorems and consider the system energy For the case of a conservative force F VU and potentials U with no explicit time dependence the total energy E is a constant Here you might use E kinetic potential energy and solve for Xt from it This should remind you of physics courses pastPHYS 110 of course but also recall how in 111 sometimes you considered the electric field EFq and other the electric potential 1 or V Uq Starting in Chapter 6 we will begin to consider other approaches namely Lagrangian or Hamiltonian ones
