Lecture Notes 18: Relativistic Electrodynamics

... space-time is the common “host” to all of the fundamental forces of nature – they all live / exist / co-exist in space-time, and all are subject to the laws of space-time – i.e. relativity! We can e.g. calculate the “magnetic” force between a current-carrying “wire” and a moving (test) charge QT wit ...

... The structures we have considered so far have been subjected to loading systems that were stationary, i.e. the loads remained in a fixed position in relation to the structure. In many practical situations, however, structures cany loads that vary continuously. Thus a building supports a system of st ...

... motion puts an object away from its original position. A person can move very fast (and thus have a large speed); but if every other step leads in opposite directions, then that person would not have a large velocity. c. FALSE - Person Y has one-half the speed of Person X. If person Y requires twice ...

Cables, Lines of Force and Structural Shapes

... A special type of tension-loaded line element is the entirely ﬂexible cable. Cables have no “natural” shape, and adapt to the load. In Section 14.1.1, we look at the behaviour of cables subject to a system of parallel forces. In Section 14.1.2, we show that the shape of a cable with respect to its c ...

... You can measure the force of friction acting on a stationary object by pulling on it with a spring scale or a force meter. If you measure the largest force required to move the object, you will determine the maximum amount of friction the surface exerts on the object just before it starts to move. I ...
