Introduction
• Previously, problems dealing with the motion of
particles were solved through the fundamental
equation of motion,  
F  ma.
• The current chapter introduces two additional
methods of analysis.

• Method of work and energy: directly relates force,

mass, velocity and displacement.

• Method of impulse and momentum: directly

relates force, mass, velocity, and time.

If you wanted to bring the package to a complete stop at the

bottom of the ramp, would it work to place a spring as shown?
No, because the potential energy of the spring would turn
into kinetic energy and push the block back up the ramp

Would the package ever come to a stop?

through the friction between the package and ramp.
