In Section 3. For the acceleration components I reproduce here an extract from that chapter:. I also derived the radial, meridional and azimuthal components of velocity and acceleration in three-dimensional spherical coordinates.

The velocity of an object is the rate of change of its position with respect to a frame of reference , and is a function of time. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of an object's speed and direction of motion e. Velocity is a fundamental concept in kinematics , the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of bodies. Velocity is a physical vector quantity ; both magnitude and direction are needed to define it.

The component v 1 is the radial component, and the component v 2 is the transverse component. Subjects: Science and technology — Mathematics and Computer Science. All Rights Reserved.

## Kinematics of a Particle

Basic Engineering Mechanics pp Cite as. Dynamics is the study of systems that are not in equilibrium. The set of forces acting on the system under consideration reduces to either a single resultant force or a resultant couple, and the system is no longer in a state of rest or constant speed in a straight line. However, if the system is not in equilibrium, then motion of some kind is certainly taking place and the study of that motion becomes all-important. Unable to display preview.

Radial and Transverse Components. This last equation gives the velocity vector 2 as the sum of the two vectors and the transverse component, 2PO+rO. 3.
