Quadratic Motion-Law

Quadratic Cam-Law, Motion-Law

You CAN specify the:

Start-Position (usually flows from the End-Position of the Previous-Segment )

Start-Velocity (usually flows from the End-Velocity of the Previous-Segment )


You CANNOT specify the:


Start-Acceleration, End-Acceleration

Start-Jerk, End-Jerk

Velocity increases or decreases linearly

Acceleration is constant, but discontinuous at its start and end.

Jerk is zero (but has infinite Jerk at its start and end.

In this image the

Start Position = 0mm

End Position = 1mm

Start Velocity = 0mm/s


Segments with Constant Acceleration, Linearly Increasing-Velocity, or Linearly Decreasing Velocity.

You can use this to model a Part under the influence of a Constant-Acceleration, or a constant force or torque.

Edit the end-position until the Acceleration is -9807mm/s/s.
