- Conservation of momeNtum

- Speed – distance moved per unit second
- Velocity – speed and direction of travel

- So with reference to the statement below:
- Uniform velocity is motion along a straight line at constant speed.
- Uniform acceleration is motion in a straight line with constant acceleration.

- We can deduce that in a straight line from stop we get uniform acceleration, then we get uniform velocity and then we get uniform deceleration as depicted in the velocity graph above.

A train accelerates uniformly from rest to reach 54km/h in 200s after which the speed remains constant for 300s, at the end of this time the train decelerates to rest in 150s.

Determine:

- The total distance travelled

- The acceleration

- The deceleration

Answer:

Distance travelled = 7125 m / 7.125 km

Acceleration = 0.075 ms-2

Deceleration = 0.1 ms-2

A truck accelerates uniformly from rest to a speed of 100km/h taking 2 minutes, it then remains at a constant velocity for 32 minutes, coming up to a set of traffic lights the truck decelerates to rest in 30s.

Determine:

- The constant velocity in m/s

- The total distance travelled

- The acceleration

- The deceleration

Answer: 27.78 m/s; 55.42 km; 0.2315 ms-2; 0.926 ms-2

A train starting from rest leave a station with uniform acceleration for 20s, it then proceeds at a constant velocity before decelerating for 30s, coming to a total standstill. If the total distance travelled is 3 km and the total time taken was 5 minutes, sketch a velocity time graph and determine:

- The uniform speed

- The acceleration

- The deceleration

- The distance travelled during the first minute

Answer: 10.91 m/s; 0.545 ms-2; 0.3637 ms-2; 545.5 m

Length of a circular arc, s = R

where is in radian

For a point object moving on a circular path at a uniform speed, its speed, v, may be calculated if the radius, R and time period, T are known. In one complete rotation, the object travels a distance of in time T. Therefore, its speed is given by,

Therefore,

When a flywheel speeds up, every point of the flywheel moves at increasing speed. Consider a point on flywheel rim, at distance R from the axis of rotation. If the flywheel speeds up from initial angular speed ω1 to angular speed ω2 in time t, then the speed of the point increases from speed u = ω1R to speed v = ω2R in time t. By using acceleration, a = (v-u)/t, the linear acceleration of the point is

where αis the angular acceleration of a rotating object, defined as the change of angular velocity per second, and given by

Hence, linear acceleration of a point along its circular path is given by,

- An aircraft accelerates from 100m/s to 300m/s in 100s. What is its acceleration?
- A car joins a motorway travelling at 15m/s. It accelerates at 2ms-2 for 8s. How far will it travel in this time?
- A vehicle accelerates from rest, covering 500m in 20s. Calculate
a) the acceleration

b) the velocity of the vehicle at the end of the run

- A fly wheel is speeded up from 5 rpm to 11 rpm in 100s. The radius of the fly wheel is 0.08m. Calculate
a) the angular acceleration of the flywheel

b) the acceleration of a point on the rim along its circular path

- A particle remains at rest or continues to move in a straight line with uniform velocity unless an unbalancing force act on it.
- The acceleration of a particle is proportional to the resultant force acting on it and in the direction of the force.
- The forces of action and reaction between interacting bodies are equal in magnitude, opposite in direction and collinear.

- The momentum of a moving object is defined as:
Momentum = mass x velocity

- The principle of conservation of momentum states that for a system of interaction objects, the total momentum remains constant, provided no external resultant force acts on the system.
