Consider the general curvilinear motion in space of a particle of mass m, where the particle is located by its position vector measured from a fixed origin O. The velocity of the particle is is tangent to its path. The resultant force of all forces on m is in the direction of its acceleration. We may write the basic equation of motion for the particle, as or Where the product of the mass and velocity is defined as the linear momentum of the particle. This equation states that the resultant of all forces acting on a particle equals its time rate of change of linear momentum.
In SI, the units of linear momentum are seen to be kg. m/s, which also equals N. s. Linear momentum equation is one of the most useful and important relationships in dynamics, and it is valid as long as mass m of the particle is not changing with time. We now write the three scalar components of linear momentum equation as These equations may be applied independently of one another.
The Linear Impulse-Momentum Principle All that we have done so far is to rewrite Newton’s second law in an alternative form in terms of momentum. But we may describe the effect of the resultant force on the linear momentum of the particle over a finite period of time simply by integrating the linear momentum equation with respect to time t. Multiplying the equation by dt gives, which we integrate from time t 1 to time t 2 to obtain Here the linear momentum at time t 2 is G 2 =mv 2 and the linear momentum at time t 1 is G 1 =mv 1. The product of force and time is defined as the linear impulse of the force, and this equation states that the total linear impulse on m equals the corresponding change in linear momentum of m.
Alternatively, we may write which says that the initial linear momentum of the body plus the linear impulse applied to it equals its final linear momentum. m v1v1 + =
The impulse integral is a vector which, in general, we may involve changes in both magnitude and direction during the time interval. Under these conditions, it will be necessary to express and in component form and then combine the integrated components. The components become the scalar equations, which are independent of one another.
There are cases where a force acting on a particle changes with the time in a manner determined by experimental measurements or by other approximate means. In this case, a graphical or numerical integration must be performed. If, for example, a force acting on a particle in a given direction changes with the time as indicated in the figure, the impulse,, of this force from t 1 to t 2 is the shaded area under the curve.
Conservation of Linear Momentum If the resultant force on a particle is zero during an interval of time, its linear momentum G remains constant. In this case, the linear momentum of the particle is said to be conserved. Linear momentum may be conserved in one direction, such as x, but not necessarily in the y - or z - direction. This equation expresses the principle of conservation of linear momentum.
PROBLEMS 1. The 200-kg lunar lander is descending onto the moon’s surface with a velocity of 6 m/s when its retro-engine is fired. If the engine produces a thrust T for 4 s which varies with the time as shown and then cuts off, calculate the velocity of the lander when t=5 s, assuming that it has not yet landed. Gravitational acceleration at the moon’s surface is 1.62 m/s 2.

In addition to the equations of linear impulse and linear momentum, there exists a parallel set of equations for angular impulse and angular momentum. First, we define the term angular momentum. Figure shows a particle P of mass m moving along a curve in space. The particle is located by its position vector with respect to a convenient origin O of fixed coordinates x-y-z. y
The velocity of the particle is, and its linear momentum is. The moment of the linear momentum vector about the origin O is defined as the angular momentum of P about O and is given by the cross-product relation for the moment of a vector The angular momentum is a vector perpendicular to the plane A defined by and. The sense of is clearly defined by the right-hand rule for cross products.
The scalar components of angular momentum may be obtained from the expansion In SI units, angular momentum has the units kg. m 2 /s =N. m. s. so that
If represents the resultant of all forces acting on the particle P, the moment about the origin O is the vector cross product We now differentiate with time, using the rule for the differentiation of a cross product and obtain The term is zero since the cross product of parallel vectors is zero.
The scalar components of this equation is Substitution into the expression for moment about O gives
The Angular Impulse-Momentum Principle To obtain the effect of the moment on the angular momentum of the particle over a finite period of time, we integrate from time t 1 to t 2. or The total angular impulse on m about the fixed point O equals the corresponding change in angular momentum of m about O. Alternatively, we may write
Plane-Motion Application Most of the applications can be analyzed as plane-motion problems where moments are taken about a single axis normal to the plane motion. In this case, the angular momentum may change magnitude and sense, but the direction of the vector remains unaltered.
Conservation of Angular Momentum If the resultant moment about a fixed point O of all forces acting on a particle is zero during an interval of time, its angular momentum remains constant. In this case, the angular momentum of the particle is said to be conserved. Angular momentum may be conserved about one axis but not about another axis. This equation expresses the principle of conservation of angular momentum.
PROBLEMS 1. The assembly starts from rest and reaches an angular speed of 150 rev/min under the action of a 20 N force T applied to the string for t seconds. Determine t. Neglect friction and all masses except those of the four 3-kg spheres, which may be treated as particles.
PROBLEMS 2. A pendulum consists of two 3.2 kg concentrated masses positioned as shown on a light but rigid bar. The pendulum is swinging through the vertical position with a clockwise angular velocity =6 rad/s when a 50-g bullet traveling with velocity v=300 m/s in the direction shown strikes the lower mass and becomes embedded in it. Calculate the angular velocity which the pendulum has immediately after impact and find the maximum deflection of the pendulum.
