We will first learn how one describes the motion of a point mass by its position, velocity, and acceleration in different coordinate systems and how such quantities can be determined. Subsequently, we will concern ourselves with the equations of motion, which prescribe the relation between forces and motion. An important role will again be played by the free-body diagram with whose help we will be able to properly derive the equations of motion. Further, we will discuss important physical concepts such as momentum, angular momentum, and work-laws and their applications.
