Dynamics Reader Grade: 7

The reader below is used by the Bristol Institute of Technology in their dynamics course. If you're having trouble understanding some parts of your own dynamics book, then this different way of explaining might come in handy.

  • Reader part 1 (686kb)
    Topics include linear motion, angular motion and 2D motion of projectiles
  • Reader part 2 (3.6Mb)
    Topics include Newton's laws, free body diagrams, acceleration and momentum.
  • Reader part 3 (2Mb)
    Topics include rotational energy, angular momentum, centrifugal force and mechanical oscillations

Book Solutions Grade: 8.9

Dynamics certainly is a difficult subject. Practice is absolutely necessary. The dynamics book serves well for that. And in case of any problems the solution manuals might help you figure out what went wrong and learn from your mistakes.

Calculator Files Grade: 2.4

Having trouble remembering dynamics equations? Well, I received these files for the TI calculator. They contain equations which you can put into your TI calculator. That is, if you have a cable to connect it to your computer.

Want some hints on how to put them on your calculator? Then follow the steps below.

  • Download the three files below.
  • Install TI Connect 1.6
    (http://education.ti.com/educationportal/downloadcenter/SoftwareDetail.do?website=US&tabId=1&paneId=7&appId=183)
  • Possibly, you need to install drivers for your calculator too. (Connect your calculator to your computer, and have it search for drivers automatically.)
  • Possibly, you might need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
  • Right-click the file "PIC1.8XI" and choose "Send to TI-device". Do the same for the other files.
  • If all above steps were successful, you can open the files on your calculator. The program is called "PVIEWER" and when you've started the program, you should choose for either Picture 1 or Picture 3.
