Course Number & Name: ENR 110 Mechanics I
Credit Hours: 3.0 Contact Hours: 3.0 Lecture: 3.0 Lab: N/A Other: N/A
Prerequisites: Grades of “C” or better in MTH 113 and PHY 101
Co-requisites: None Concurrent Courses: None
Course Description: This is a basic course in statics for technology students involving the fundamental principles of the mechanics of rigid bodies. Topics included are vectors, forces, moments, center of gravity, free-body diagrams, equilibrium, simple trusses, friction and moment of inertia.
Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- compute the resultant of a two-dimensional system of forces;
- compute the forces in the members of a simple structure;
- compute simple friction forces; and
- compute the centroid and moment of inertia of a two-dimensional shape.
