Theoretical Mechanics for Sixth Forms, Volume 2, Second (SI) Edition focuses on the processes, principles, methodologies, and approaches involved in the theoretical mechanics for sixth forms. The publication first elaborates on the motion of a rigid body about a fixed axis, free motion of a rigid body in two dimensions, and motion with variable acceleration. Discussions focus on equations of motion deduced from the energy equation, damped harmonic oscillations, rate of working by a variable force, impulsive motion, instantaneous center of rotation, and force exerted on the axis of rotation. The text also ponders on motion of a particle in two dimensions and systems of coplanar forces. Concerns cover moment of a force as a vector, equilibrium of a rigid body under the action of a system of coplanar forces, equivalence of sets of coplanar forces, forces acting on a particle, angular momentum of a particle about an axis, and motion of a particle on a smooth curve. The book focuses on vector algebra and the motion of bodies with variable mass, including rectilinear motion of chains, addition and subtraction of vectors, and vector product. The publication is a valuable source of data for students of mathematics and researchers interested in the theoretical mechanics for sixth forms.
