Abstract

The present study was designed to introduce momentum, impulse and kinetic energy of motion into growth mechanics in order to construct corresponding items hypothetically. The results obtained were as follows. Growth mechanics versions of momentum, impulse and kinetic energy were constructed according to definitions in motion. Growth mechanics versions of three items might look like those of motion in the form of equations. This was due probably to the resemblance between equation of growth force and Newton's equation of motion. However, coefficients of equations were different between growth mechanics and Newtonian mechanics. This difference was probably caused by symmetric properties of exponential function with base e in both differential and integral that relate coefficients to exponents. The way of construction and interpretation of growth mechanics versions of momentum, impulse and kinetic energy should be investigated further.
