CONTENT

-Dynamics of particles -Dynamics of rigid bodies -Introduction to 3D dynamics

OBJECTIVE

This course is designed for undergraduate students to (i) develop an understanding of particle and planar rigid body kinematics and kinetics (ii) obtain an understanding of Newton's Laws of Motion, and (iii) gain the ability to apply energy and momentum methods to particles and rigid bodies in planar motion.

LEARNING OUTCOME

Understand the basic kinematics concepts: displacement, velocity, and acceleration (and their angular counterparts)
Be able to draw free-body diagram for a particle or a rigid body in motion
Understand the basic concepts of force, momentum, and energy
Understand and be able to apply Newton's laws of motion
Understand and be able to apply work-energy, impulse-momentum principle
Extend all of concepts of linear kinetics to systems in general plane motion
