How to use Rigid-bodies in a sentence
These theorems, which hold for the motion of a single rigid body, are true generally for a flexible system, such as considered here for a liquid, with one or more rigid bodies swimming in it; and they express the statement that the work done by an impulse is the product of the impulse and the arithmetic mean of the initial and final velocity; so that the kinetic energy is the work done by the impulse in starting the motion from rest.
This is the earliest example of a theoretical investigation of the rotation of rigid bodies.
The vast majority of simulations of physical systems, including the movement of rigid bodies under forces, are carried out using vector algebra.
Further data are provided on basic elements, such as springs, dampers and rigid bodies.
The general case of 3D motion of rigid bodies reduces to translation + rotation about a fixed axis.Advertisement
