Motion in a Plane
101110510307001011304Motion in a PlaneHaving described in the previous chapter how to define motion in one dimension, I will now extend these ideas to include motion in two or three dimensions. However, in many important problems (for example, projectiles, planetary orbits, oscillations of a pendulum), the motion is limited to a plane, so I will limit the discussion to this case. The basic features of three-dimensional motion readily follow from this treatment.
Position, Velocity, and Acceleration For motion in one dimension, I was able to describe vector properties simply by …
