Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that, laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. These three laws have been expressed in several ways, over nearly three centuries, and can be summarised as follows: In his 1687 "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), Isaac Newton set out three laws of motion. The first law defines the force F, the second law defines the mass m, and the third law defines the acceleration a. The first law states that if the net force acting upon a body is zero, its velocity will not change; the second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting upon it, and the third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In physics, dynamics is the branch of physics concerned with the study of forces and their effect on matter, commonly in the context of motion. In everyday usage, "dynamics" usually refers to a set of laws that describe the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The motion of a body is described by its position and its velocity as the time value varies. The science of dynamics can be subdivided into, Dynamics of a rigid body, which deals with the motion of a rigid body in the frame of reference where it is considered to be a rigid body. Dynamics of a continuum, which deals with the motion of a continuous system, in the frame of reference where the system is considered to be a continuum.

and this problem. We have an I beam that's being lifted by a crane. The cables attached to the I B make a make a 70 degree angle with it. The IBM weighs eight killer Newton's, and it's being listed at a constant velocity. So I need to do is isolate the forces that act on the IBM sauce. Try being here and then we have a tension in the left cable and attention in the right cable. We'll call this T one and P two now. We also have the weight backing and assuming that the beam is uniform, the way sweat at the geometric center and we'll call that ducky. And so this angle between the beam and the load is data being on the tension. And so we have components of each of these tensions. You have a component in the why direction and we have a component in the extraction. So in the wind direction, because of the angle, this is T to sign data and the other one is t One sign ate up in the horizontal direction. You have t one co sign data and this one over here is T too ho sai data. So how so? Make the forces in each of the verdict on the horizontal direction. So let's do it in the horizontal direction. First of the summation of forces in the ex direction and others we've called X to the right positive. So that's equals t one ho sign data minus t, too. Ho sai data. And because the acceleration is zero that is all equal to zero francelino the coastline data you find the team one plus equal t to let's just call that tea. So in the vertical direction, get up is positive. So we have p one sign Tina plus t two sides Rena minus stop you and again since it's being lifted to the constant velocity of ex elevation is zero. Now we can get rid of the indices on our attention because you know that they are the same. So we saw this for tea and we find the t equals w divided by to sign. Hey, Noah plugging in the numbers eight Killer news over to sign of 70 degrees and that is equal to 4.26 We look at our answer that I've boxed here. It's symbolic form. You can see that as expected, the tension increases as the way increases, and I let you think about how the tension varies as the angle say that changes.
