Course Description: This is a course in kinematics and kinetics using vector analysis. Topics covered include curvilinear motion with respect to fixed and rotating axes of particles and rigid bodies, work, energy, impulse, and momentum.
Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- apply the concepts and principles of kinematics and kinetics of a particle including force and acceleration, work and energy, and impulse and momentum to solve engineering problems;
- apply the concepts and principles of planar kinematics and kinetics of a rigid body including force and acceleration, work and energy, and impulse and momentum to solve engineering problems; and
- determine the kinematic and kinetic properties of a rigid body in three dimensions.
