Applied Mathematics - Dynamics

Dunsby, P. (Peter)



These resources are a selection of audio and video podcasts from a first year Dynamics class (MAM1044H) at the University of Cape Town. The lectures cover a wide range of topics: Systematic introduction to the elements of mechanics; kinematics in three dimensions. Newton's laws of motion, models of forces (friction, elastic springs, fluid resistance). Conservation of energy and momentum. Simple systems of particles, including brief introduction to rigid systems. Orbital Mechanics with applications to the planning of space missions to the outer planets.
