Catalog description: Prerequisites: MATH 231, ENGR 212. Offered in fall and spring. Kinematics and kinetics of a particle, system of particles, and rigid bodies. Energy and momentum methods. Engineering applications. Prerequisites: 1. Knowledge of Newton's laws of motion for particles 2. Ability to draw free body diagrams. 3. Basic knowledge of calculus 4. Ability to sketch graphs of functions Textbook: Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics, F.P. Beer, E.R. Johnston and P. Cornwell, McGraw-Hill, 9th edition, 2009. Course goals: 1. Develop the ability to use Newton's laws for dynamic situations. 2. Develop the ability to select the correct approach in dynamics. 3. Develop the multi-step approach as the model of problem solving Course outcomes: After completing the course, students will be able to: 1. Choose the methods (Newton’s laws, work energy, impulse momentum) to best solve a dynamics problem 2. Work with and convert between, X-Y, N-T, R- coordinate systems 3. Analyze the kinematics of the crank slider and four bar linkage for velocity and acceleration 4. Apply Newton’s laws to planar motion to obtain instantaneous acceleration of a body by drawing the appropriate free body diagram, corresponding equations of motion, and solving the equations 5. Apply the work-energy method to planar motion problems involving translation and rotation 6. Apply impulse-momentum methods to planar motion problems involving translation and rotation Topics: A.
