Planar motion with Fresnel integrals as components of the velocity

E. Flores-Garduño, Stefan C. Mancas, Haret C. Rosu, M. Perez-Maldonado


We analyze the two-dimensional motion of a rigid body due to a constant torque generated by a force acting on the body parallel to the surface on which the body moves extending an old note of Ferris-Prabhu [Am. J. Phys. 38, 1356-1357 (1970)] and supplementing it with a short discussion of the jerking properties.
