Compare with Definitions

Statics

Statics is the branch of mechanics that is concerned with the analysis of (force and torque, or "moment") acting on physical systems that do not experience an acceleration (a=0), but rather, are in static equilibrium with their environment. The application of Newton's second law to a system gives: F = m a .

Dynamics

(used with a sing. verb) The branch of mechanics that is concerned with the effects of forces on the motion of a body or system of bodies, especially of forces that do not originate within the system itself. Also called kinetics.

Statics

The equilibrium mechanics of stationary bodies.

Dynamics

(used with a pl. verb) The forces and motions that characterize a system
The dynamics of ocean waves are complex.

Statics

(physics) The branch of mechanics concerned with forces in static equilibrium
ADVERTISEMENT

Dynamics

(used with a pl. verb) The social, intellectual, or moral forces that produce activity and change in a given sphere
The dynamics of international trade have influenced our business decisions on this matter.

Statics

That branch of mechanics which treats of the equilibrium of forces, or relates to bodies as held at rest by the forces acting on them; - distinguished from dynamics.

Dynamics

(used with a pl. verb) Variation in force or intensity, especially in musical sound.

Statics

The branch of mechanics concerned with forces in equilibrium

Dynamics

(used with a sing. verb) Psychodynamics.

Dynamics

(mechanics) The branch of mechanics that is concerned with the effects of forces on the motion of objects.

Dynamics

(music) The volume of the sound, such as piano, mezzo piano, mezzo forte, and forte.

Dynamics

Forces that stimulate growth, change, or development.
The changing dynamics in international politics led to such an outcome.

Dynamics

That branch of mechanics which treats of the motion of bodies (Kinematics) and the action of forces in producing or changing their motion (kinetics). Dynamics is held by some recent writers to include statics and not kinematics.

Dynamics

The moving moral, as well as physical, forces of any kind, or the laws which relate to them.

Dynamics

That department of musical science which relates to, or treats of, the power of tones.

Dynamics

The branch of mechanics concerned with the forces that cause motions of bodies
