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.

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

History of science print that page


The history of science is the study of the historical development of human understandings of the natural world . Until the late 20th century the history of science, especially of the physical and biological sciences, was seen as a narrative celebrating the triumph of true theories over false

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

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

History of special relativity print that page


The history of special relativity consists of many theoretical results and empirical findings obtained by Albert Michelson , Hendrik Lorentz , Henri Poincaré and others. It culminated in the theory of special relativity proposed by Albert Einstein , and subsequent work of Max Planck , Hermann

Galileo Galilei print that pageTimeline of Galileo Galilei


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

Coriolis effect print that page


In physics, the Coriolis effect is a deflection of moving objects when they are viewed in a rotating reference frame . In a reference frame with clockwise rotation, the deflection is to the left of the motion of the object; in one with counter-clockwise rotation, the deflection is to the right
