Book Description

Describing Motion: The Physical World provides the quantitative description of a variety of physically important motions. Starting with simple examples of motion along a line, the book introduces key concepts, such as position, velocity, and acceleration, using the fundamental rules of differential calculus. Topics include the free-fall motion of micro-gravity test vehicles, the trajectories of long-jumpers, and the orbital motion of satellites and space probes. The book also covers several essential mathematical tools.
