By Wilhelm H Westphal

This ebook is a translation of the sixth to eighth variation of the author's Kleines Lehrbuch der Physik. The circle of readers to which it hopes to attraction and the author's objective in writing it were set out within the Preface to the 1st German version, released in 1948. the current publication constantly follows the foundations of the idea of amounts, the beginnings of which date again to James C. Maxwell. which means in all equations during this e-book the symbols perpetually stand for actual amounts and never for the numerical values of amounts. in simple terms then are the equations gene rally legitimate and self sustaining of the alternative of devices utilized in their overview. The devices used are continually the "metric" devices which were gaining floor more and more additionally within the English-speaking international locations. A conversion desk for many of the extra vital Anglo-American devices is given on web page XIV. i need to checklist my honest gratitude to Mr. Ewald Osers for his pains­ taking paintings in making this translation and to Mr. P. C. Banbury, Ph. D., of the dept of Physics, collage of studying, England, either for the recommendation he has given hirn all through and for devising the issues especially for this variation.

22a). x Fig. 22. a and b parabolic trajectories; c ballistic curve horizontal and a vertical motion. In the direction x the body is not acted upon by any force. Along that direction, therefore, it moves with a constant velocity vx=vx,o=vo cosljJ and after time t reaches the point x=vot cosljJ. 1) of vy, 0 = V o sinljJ, hence y = Vo t sin ljJ - g t 2 /2. By eliminating the time from these two equations we have the equation for the trajectory of the body: y=xtanljJ - gx 2 2 2ljJ . 5) 26 24. Work The trajectory, therefore, is a parabola.

E. changes of angular velocity with time. Obviously we are dealing with the effects offorces, but these are of a special kind. A single force can only cause a translational acceleration. And so long as several forces acting upon a body can be reduced without remainder to a single resultant force, the same holds good. a ro Fig. 32. Couples The only case when such a reduction to a single force (Section 15) is impossible is that of two equal anti-parallel forces ~ and -~, known as a couple (Fig. 32a).

In this way we induce a forward-directed staticfriction in the surface of contact, and this sets us in motion and keeps us so against aB opposing forces. Apart from these opposing forces this static friction is the only force acting upon us, and hence alone capable of accelerating uso Exact1y the same applies to motor vehic1es. Their engine transmits a back ward force to the point of contact of their drive wheels and the road surface, and the forward-directed static friction thus induced propels the vehic1e forward.
