Application of the equations of motion
... of Newton’s Laws of Motion – Measurement of the acceleration due to gravity g using gym weights Introduction and Principle Newton’s equations of motion form the basis of all engineering and constitute the quantitative framework of Newton’s laws of motion. If a body with initial velocity u undergoes uniform acceleration a and covers a distance s in the time t,
Where v is the final velocity.
When applied to rotating bodies, these equations undergo a change of terms. The terms corresponding to distance, velocity, acceleration and force, change respectively to angle, angular velocity, angular acceleration and torque. Mass is similarly replaced by the complementary moment of inertia.
