Dynamics and Stability – Exercises Module 1: Newton’s Laws and Fictitious Forces

Course week(s) 1. Newton’s Laws and Fictitious Forces

Corresponding to each module, as described in the lectures section, the teachers handed out one or more sample problems. These are worked out examples that illustrate how to work with a certain method.

Next to the given sample problems, several recommended exercises are given. These exercises can be found in the textbook of this course (Analytical Mechanics, by Josef S. Tőrők). More on this textbook can be found in the readings section.

Sample problems:

Recommended exercises:

Solve the exercises in the provided order:

  • 1.147 (Choose the x-axis coinciding with the longitudinal axis of the airplane, the z-axis pointing upward and the propeller blade coinciding with the y-axis for t=0. Be careful with the units!)
  • 1.190
  • 4.40
  • 1.112
  • 1.158
  • 1.169 (Colatitude is the complementary angle to the latitude)
  • 4.14(b)
  • 4.41
  • 1.207
