Kinematics print that page

The term kinematics is less common today than in the past, but still has a role in physics. [ 5 ] (See analytical dynamics for more detail on usage). The term kinematics also finds use in biomechanics and animal locomotion . [ 6 ] The simplest application of kinematics is for particle

Stellar kinematics print that page


latter have elliptical orbits that are inclined to the plane of the galaxy. [ 5 ] Comparison of the kinematics of nearby stars has also led to the identification of stellar associations . These are most likely groups of stars that share a common point of origin in giant molecular clouds.

Inverse kinematics print that page

The inverse kinematics problem is simply stated as, "Given the desired position of the robot's hand, what must be the angles at all of the robot's joints?" This is in contrast to the forward kinematics problem, which is, "Given the angles at all of the robot 's joints, what is the position

Plate tectonics print that page


The tectonic plates are composed of two types of lithosphere : thicker continental and thin oceanic. The upper part is called the crust , again of two types (continental and oceanic). This means that a plate can be of one type, or of both types. One of the main points the theory proposes is

Robot kinematics print that page


Robot kinematics deals with aspects of redundancy , collision avoidance and singularity avoidance . While dealing with the kinematics used in the robots we deal each parts of the robot by assigning a frame of reference to it and hence a robot with many parts may have many individual frames

Force print that page


In physics , a force is any influence that causes a object to undergo a change in speed, a change in direction, or a change in shape. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull that can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin

Astronomy print that page


Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences. Prehistoric cultures left behind astronomical artifacts such as the Egyptian monuments , Nubian monuments and Stonehenge , and early civilizations such as the Babylonians , Greeks , Chinese , Indians , and Maya performed methodical observations of

high school and introductory college physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics . His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus , the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean
