Grades

Lecture Schedule

Lecture 1

Introduction

Tasks (for Lecture 2):

  • Install OpenSim and do the first three tutorials (Help menu).
  • Write a Jupyter notebook to compute and plot the acceleration of the particle with displacement data contained in the file pezzack.txt. Additionally, compare the computed acceleration with the true acceleration (contained in the same data).

Readings (for Lecture 3):

  • Bear, M., Connors, B., & Paradiso, M. (2017). Neuroscience: Exploring the brain (4th ed.). (pages 454-468).

Lecture 2

Task for lecture 3:

  • Write a Jupyter notebook to find the trajectory of a ball considering the air drag proportional to the square root of the ball velocity. Consider that the initial velocity of the particle is $v_0 = 30 m/s$ and the initial angle with the horizontal plane is 30 degrees, the gravity acceleration is $g = 9.81 m/s^2$, the mass of the ball is m = 0.43 kg and the air drag coefficient is $b= 0.006 kg.m^{1/2}/s^{3/2}$.
