Here are three examples: a car motion on a straight line, a pendulum inside an elevator and water behaviour on a swirl.

#### Explanation:

- A car moving along a sthraight line can be described through kinematic basic equations.

For instance uniform rectilinear motion or uniformly accelerated rectilinear motion (a body moving along a straight line with constant speed or acceleration, respectively). - A pendulum inside an elevator can be described through Newton's second law (dynamics).

Force on pendulum can be described as a combination of gravitational force and acceleration of elevator. - A water swirl obeys several equations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluid_mechanics#Navier.E2.80.93Stokes_equations) which describe how fluids move in certain environment, giving some initial or boundary conditions.
