Students coming out of this class should have a deep conceptual understanding of classical Newtonian mechanics. This course, General Mechanics II, provides instruction in dynamics of multiparticle system and rigid body on the basis of the dynamics of one-particle provided in General Mechanics I. lesson1:Motion of two particleslesson2:Motion of two particles (Continued)lesson3: Motion under a central forcelesson4:Motion under a central force (Continued)lesson5:Derivation of the equation of rotational motion of a rigid body about a fixed axislesson6:Calculating moments of inertialesson7:Examples of the rotational motion of a rigid body about a fixed axislesson8:Examples of the rotational motion of a rigid body about a fixed axis (Continued)lesson9:Derivation of the equations of plane motion of a rigid bodylesson10:Examples of the plane motion of a rigid bodylesson11: Examples of the plane motion of a rigid body (Continued)lesson12: Examples of the plane motion of a rigid body (Continued)lesson13:Relative motionlesson14: Motion in a rotating frame of referencelesson15: Foucault pendulumterm-end examAssignments will be given. The textbook will be provided in lesson 1.  There exist no other recommended textbooks. The textbook and projections. lesson1: Understand the formulation of the motion of two particles.lesson2: Solve problems about the collisions of two particles.lesson3: Understand the solution method and characteristics of the motion under the central force proportional to the distance between two particles.lesson4: Review the basics of two-dimensional polar coordinate system and the solution method applying the conservation of energy. Understand the solution method of the motion under the universal gravitational force, characteristics of various types of trajectory, and Kepler's law.lesson5: Review the basics of angular momentum and torque. Understand the derivation of the equation of rotational motion of a rigid body about a fixed axis.lesson6: Solve problems calculating moments of inertia of plane rigid bodies.lesson7-8: Review the solution method of ordinary differential equations. Solve problems about the rotational motion of a rigid body about a fixed axis.lesson9: Understand the derivation of the equations of plane motion of a rigid body.lesson10: Solve problems about the motion of a disk.lesson11: Solve problems about the motion of a stick.lesson12: Solve problems about the motion of movable pulleys.lesson13: Understand the origin of an inertial force by the transformation from an inertial frame of reference to a non-inertial frame of reference. Solve problems about the motion in a non-inertial frame of reference.lesson14: Understand the derivation of the equation of motion in a rotating frame of reference, characteristics of Coriolis and centrifugal forces. Consider the conservation property of angular momentum in a rotating frame of reference.lesson15: Understand the solution method and characteristics of the motion of a Foucault pendulum. Students are expected to have taken the class of “General Physics I”.Freshmen should take the specified class. About 70% by the term-end exam and about 30% by the assignments. Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
