This lesson covers the principles of kinetics, specifically focusing on the action of forces on rigid bodies. It begins with a recap of Newton's second law, explaining how force causes acceleration and the role of mass in this process. The lesson then delves into the laws of motion that govern plane kinetics of rigid bodies, including Euler's Laws of motion. It explains the concept of the center of mass and how it is defined. The lesson also discusses the additional degrees of freedom that a rigid body has, such as the ability to rotate, and how this affects the laws of motion. It concludes with an explanation of the conservation of angular momentum and how moments are calculated.

Kinetics is the study of motion considering the forces that cause it. In this lesson, the focus is on the kinetics of rigid bodies.

Newton's second law states that force causes acceleration, and the proportionality constant is mass.

The center of mass is a crucial concept in understanding the motion of rigid bodies. It is the point where the entire mass of the body can be assumed to be concentrated.

Euler's Laws of motion extend Newton's laws to rigid bodies, taking into account their ability to rotate as well as translate.

The conservation of angular momentum is another key principle in understanding the motion of rigid bodies.
