Course Objective:

The course teaches students how to apply Newtonian physics to analyse simple physical mechanisms. Some of the topics covered are kinematics and kinetics for particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies. The course is restricted mostly to 2-D mechanisms.

Extended Description:

Dynamics of particles: Rectilinear and curvilinear motion, Newton's laws, momentum and angular momentum methods. Work and energy. Dynamics of rigid bodies; kinematics, Euler's Laws, angular momentum. Work and energy methods for rigid bodies.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:

- apply (a) the vector calculus for analyzing position, velocity, acceleration, forces, and moments
- determine (E) displacement, velocity, and acceleration in both scalar and vector terms for rectilinear and curvilinear motion of particles having variable acceleration.
- construct (a) idealized (particle and rigid body) dynamical models through free-body diagrams and predict (E) the response of the dynamical system (particle and rigid body) to applied forces using Newtonian mechanics.
- determine (E) the requirements for the planar equilibrium of particles and solid bodies and solve (E) for the equilibrium including the calculations of moment of force, inertia moments of solid bodies
- apply (a) the basic concepts of force, mass and acceleration, of work and energy, and of impulse and momentum principles to planar dynamics
- use engineering software tools to solve (E) dynamics problems of particles and rigid body systems
