Brief description of course

This course introduces students to the basic principles of dynamics and their application to particles and rigid bodies. It covers topics such as the fundamentals of dynamics, Particle kinematics and kinetics, Mass moments of inertia, Kinetics of systems of particles, Kinematics and Kinetics of a rigid body in plane motion and Three Dimensional dynamics of a rigid body.

Objectives of the course

  • To equip students with the ability to visualize physical configuration in terms of real materials, actual constraints, and the practical limitations which govern the behavior of machines and structures. This ability to visualize is so vital to problem formulation through the construction of a meaningful mathematical model.
