static and dynamic systems difference and information

Static and Dynamic System: Differences and Information

In science and engineering, systems can be broadly classified into two fundamental types: static and dynamic system. These terms serve as foundational concepts that help us understand and analyse a wide range of phenomena, ranging from the motion of celestial bodies to the intricate mechanisms of engineering systems.   Dynamic systems are characterised as energetic and forceful, capable of generating momentum. On the other hand, static systems imply a state of being stationary. In the context of mechanism, engineering, and
