The standardised acceleration due to gravity ; Mass Moment of Inertia The mass moment of inertia of a body about an axis has been defined as the sum of the products of masselements and the square of their distance from the axis
Work and Power The Work Done W (= Joules = N.m ) by constant Force F_x (N) applied for a distance x (m) W = F_x . x Power is the rate of doing Work P (= Watts = N.m / s ) by constant Force F_x (N) applied for a distance x (m) over t(seconds) P = F_x . x / t also Power = Force F_x at a set velocity v ( N / s) P = F_x . v Rotation The power transmitted by a rotating shaft = the torque T x the angular velocity. P = T * ω =
T * 2 * π * n Energy The energy gained by a body during a displacement is equal to the work done by external forces acting upon the body. This includes frictional and non friction forces. The potential energy is the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to some datum level.
e_{p} = M . g _{n}. h The kinetic energy of a a body by virtue of its motion at uniform linear velocity e_{k} = 1/2 . m . v ^{2} The kinetic energy of a a rotating body e_{k} = 1/2 . I . p ^{2} Conservation of Energy.. In the absence of any dissipative forces i.e.friction , the sum of the potential energy and kinetic energy remains constant.
