Objective. To investigate particle motion along a curved path “ Curvilinear Motion ” using three coordinate systems Rectangular Components Position vector r = x i + y j + z k Velocity v = v x i + v y j + v z k (tangent to path)
A collar slides along the smooth vertical spiral rod, r = (2q) m, where q is in radians. If its angular rate of rotation is constant and equal 4 rad/s, at the instant q = 90o. Determine
- The collar radial and transverse component of velocity
- The collar radial and transverse component of acceleration.
- The magnitude of velocity and acceleration
