kin·e·mat·ics

 (kĭn′ə-măt′ĭks)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The branch of mechanics that studies the motion of a body or a system of bodies without consideration given to its mass or the forces acting on it.

[From Greek kīnēma, kīnēmat-, motion, from kīnein, to move; see keiə- in Indo-European roots.]

kin′e·mat′ic, kin′e·mat′i·cal adj.
kin′e·mat′i·cal·ly adv.

Analysis of sags of the trusses has demonstrated that displacements of a common transverse truss within the general spatial system are almost not districted by the contour support beam as these ones are identical to the sag of the truss with free supports, but in the connecting transverse truss this restriction is considerable (difference from ideal fixing 2 % in total), because it is provided by the curved contour of the support beam (a sag of semi-trusses is kinematically dependent on that one of the connecting truss).
There are six pairs of moving blades 14 on the side disks 3, which are kinematically connected to the semiannular profile cam 15 mounted on the press frame.
Significant differences were observed in the average knee angle and hip ROM between the contralateral and amputated limbs in the control condition, indicating that these volunteers were kinematically asymmetrical before altering crank arm length (Figure 2).

Many early-type galaxies also have internal structures with kinematic properties that are dramatically different from the rest of the galaxy; these kinematically decoupled cores are probably the result of a dramatic merger or accretion event.
