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:

  1. compute the resultant of a two-dimensional system of forces;
  2. compute the forces in the members of a simple structure;
  3. compute simple friction forces; and
  4. compute the centroid and moment of inertia of a two-dimensional shape.
