As
we all are aware of how important mechanics is in physics, here are more tips
to solve problems further. Though intensive practice is required in mechanics ,
it is essential to know how to solve the problems too….

Here
are few ways to approach problems in mechanics…

In
a PLANE :

In
such type of problems, do follow the below:

**i.**The very first step required is to select a coordinate system and resolve the velocity vector into its individual x and y components.

**ii.**Next, find out the respective acceleration in each direction and solve according to the equation of rectilinear motion.

**iii.**Now, if you find acceleration only in vertical direction, follow the methods for solving constant-acceleration problems to analyze the vertical motion. The motion in x and y have the same time of flight t.

**iv.**If there is any problem relating to the trajectory, find the motions in x and y direction with respect to time from the previous point and from one equation, find the value of t and substitute that in another equation to find out the equation of the trajectory.

**i**. To solve such problems, just select one coordinate system and resolve the velocity into x, y and z directions.

**ii.**The acceleration in each direction can be found out and solved according to the equation of rectilinear motion.

**i**. To approach any problem, the very first thing needed to be done is to draw a neat diagram of the system.

**ii.**Next, consider all the forces and their origin on each object. Find out the forces acting on each object. Note down all the contact forces wherever there is a contact.

**iii.**Calculate the centripetal force required for the motion which is circular.

The
velocity can be found accordingly with the centripetal force = mv2/R.
