The study of motion of a body under the action of a force is called “dynamics”.
2. Types of motion:-
For any body there are three types of motions. They are:-
1. Translatory motion.
2. Oscillatory motion.
3. Rotatory motion.
Running boy, motion of car etc. are some of the examples for translatory motion.
The oscillation of a simple pendulum is an example for oscillatory motion.
The motions of the wheel of a bicycle, the motion of a fly wheel about its axis are some examples for rotatory motion.
3. Rigid body:-
A body which does not undergo any change in its shape and volume by the application of a force is called a rigid body.
4. Angular displacement:-
The angular displacement is the angle described by a radius vector of a particle on rotating body in a given interval of time.
Units of Angular displacement:-
Angular displacement is measured in the units of radians.
1. The time period of a particle in a circular motion is defined as the time taken by it to complete one revolution.
2. One revolution=2П radians.
6. Uniform Circular motion:-
If the magnitude of the linear velocity ‘v’ of a body remains constant but its direction changes continuously, then the body is said to be in uniform circular motion. In uniform circular motion the angular velocity is constant.
7. Relation between linear velocity and angular velocity:-
As shown in the figure,
Let the body be in circular motion of radius ‘r’ with linear velocity ‘v’ and angular velocity ‘ω’.
Let the body move from ‘A’ to ‘B’ in small interval of time ‘t’. During this time interval angular displacement is θ.
1. Linear momentum=p=mass x velocity.
2 Angular momentum=L=mvr.
8. Centripetal acceleration:-
A particle executing uniform circular motion undergoes a continuous change in the direction of its velocity which results in an acceleration directed towards the centre of the circle is called centripetal acceleration.
Centripetal acceleration =a
9. Centripetal force:-
The force which acts continuously on a particle initially moving with a linear velocity and makes it travel along a circular path is called centripetal force. Centripetal force is directed towards the centre of the circle.
Centripetal force is given by
10. Examples of Centripetal force:-
1. The gravitational force of attraction of the earth on the moon.
2. The electrostatic force of attraction of nucleus on the revolving electrons.
3. The frictional force applied by rails on the wheels of the train moving in a curved path.
11. Non-inertial frame of reference:-
An imaginary co-ordinate system which is attached to a rotating or accelerated body where Newton’s laws are not valid is called non-inertial frame of reference.
12. Inertial frame of reference:-
An imaginary co-ordinate system which is either at rest or in uniform motion where Newton’s laws are valid is called an “inertial frame of reference”.
13. Differences between inertial frame of reference and non inertial frame of reference:-
|Inertial frame||Non-inertial frame|
|1. An imaginary co-ordinate system either at rest or in uniform motion where Newton’s law are valid is called inertial frame of reference.||An imaginary coordinate system which is attached to a rotating or accelerated body where Newton’s law are not valid is called non-inertial frame of reference.|
14. Centrifugal force:-
A radially outward force on a body in a uniform circular motion, observed only in a rotating frame of reference is called centrifugal force.
Centrifugal force is directed away from the centre of the circle.
15. Examples of centrifugal force:-
2. Centrifugal pump.
3. Banking of roads and railway tracks.
A centrifuge is a machine used to separate particles of higher mass from those of lower mass in a given mixture.
A centrifuge consists of a cylindrical vessel rotated about its own axis at high speed with the help of an electric motor.
When milk is poured into the cylindrical vessel of the centrifuge and rotated with high speed, the particles of higher mass (skimmed milk) are thrown away from the centre due to greater centrifugal force and lower mass cream particles collected at the centre i.e., near the axle.
17. Working of a Laundry drier:-
1. In a laundry drier, the wet clothes are dropped into a cylindrical vessel containing holes.
2. When the vessel is rotated, the wet clothes get stuck to the walls of the vessel.
3. The centrifugal force pushes the water molecules from the clothes out through the holes. Thus, the clothes are dried.
18. Banking angle:-
The angle made by the line joining the outer raised edge of the road to the inner edge with the horizontal line is called banking angle.
19. Expression for angle of banking:-
Let AB and AC be the horizontal and banked paths respectively and BC be the raised edge.
Let θ be the angle of banking. Let a vehicle of mass ‘m’ take a turn on the curved path of radius ‘r’ with the speed ‘v’. Its weight ‘mg’ acts vertically downwards. The normal reaction ‘R’ of the road on the body will be perpendicular to AC.
The normal reaction can be resolved into vertical and horizontal components Rcosθ and Rsinθ respectively.
The vertical component is equal to the weight of the body i.e.,
The horizontal component provides the centripetal force.
Equating equations (1) and (2) we get,
By knowing the values of ‘v’ and ‘r’ we can determine the angle of banking ‘θ’.

When a knife is pressed on a rotating grinding stone, the sparks fly tangential to the rotating grind stone.
23. What supplies the centripetal force for an electron to revolve around the nucleus?
The centripetal force is provided by electro static force of attraction between the electrons and the nucleus.
24. What is the necessity for the banking of roads?
If there is no banking, the vehicle has to take the help of frictional force between the tyres and the road. Since, the frictional force is limited and is not always dependable, banking of roads is necessary otherwise the vehicle would skid.
25. Why skidding of motor car generally takes place in a curved path on a rainy day?
While moving in a curved path the necessary centripetal force for the car is derived from the friction. During rainy day the frictional force decreases due to the presence of water layer. So the required centripetal force is not supplied. Hence it skids.
