## A - ENGINEERING MECHANICS (LECTURE)

1. Engineering Mechanics
Engineering Mechanics is the science which deals with the study of forces and motion of rigid bodies.
2. Branches of Engineering Mechanics
2.1
Statics is a branch of mechanics which studies forces on rigid bodies that remain at rest or bodies
that is stationary.
2.2
Dynamics is a branch of mechanics which considers the motion of rigid bodies caused by the forces
acting upon them or dynamics deals with bodies not in equilibrium.
3. Branches of Dynamics
3.1
Kinematics is a branch of dynamics which deals with pure motion or deals only with the motions of
bodies without reference to the forces that causes them to move.
3.2
Kinetics is a branch of dynamics which relates motion to the applied forces or deals with both the
forces acting on the body and the motion which causes the body to move.
4. Definition of Terms:
4.1
Force is a push or pull which tends to change the state of rest or of uniform motion, the direction
of motion, or the shape and size of a body. Force is a vector quantity
4.2
Matter is any substance that occupies space and has mass.
4.3
Inertia is the property of matter that causes it to resist any change in its state of rest or uniform
motion. There are three kinds of inertia inertia at rest, inertia of motion and inertia of direction.
The mass of a body is a measure of its inertia.
4.4
Mass is the quantity of matter contained in a body. The mass of a body remains the same
everywhere. It is a measure of inertia, which means a resistance to a change of motion. The SI unit
of mass is kg.
4.5
Velocity is the displacement of the body per unit time. It is a vector quantity. The SI units of
velocity are m/s.
4.6
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of a moving body. The SI units of acceleration are
m/s2.
4.7
Rigid Body is a body in which the relative distance between internal points does not change.
5. Newtons Laws of Motion for a Particle
5.1
A particle acted upon by a balanced force system has no acceleration.
5.2
A particle acted upon by an unbalance force system has an acceleration in line with and directly
proportional to the resultant of the force system.
5.3
Action and reaction forces between two particles are always equal and oppositely directed.
6. Physical Quantities
6.1
Scalar quantity has magnitude only. (Ex. mass, speed, volume, time, etc.)
6.2
Vector quantity has magnitude and direction. (Ex. weight, force, velocity, acceleration).
7. Forces (Static)
7.1
Composition of forces finding the resultant of two or more forces.
7.2
Resolution of forces finding the resultant of two or more components of a force.

Potential Energy is energy possessed by a body due to its position. There are two types of
potential energies, gravitational and elastic. The potential energy of a body due to its height from
the ground is called its gravitational potential energy. The potential energy of a body due to its
configuration (shape) is called its elastic potential energy.

## 26. Law of Conservation of Momentum

Law of conservation of momentum the total momentum of a group of interacting bodies remains constant
in the absence of external force.

forces, motions, and static conditions in continuous material. This study area deals with many and
diversified problems such as surface tension, fluid statics, flow in enclose bodies, or flow round
bodies (solid or otherwise), flow stability, etc.
1.2

Fluid mechanics is the study of fluids (gases and liquids) either in motion (fluid dynamics) or at rest
(fluid statics) and the subsequent effects of the fluid upon the boundaries, which may be either solid
surfaces or interfaces with other fluids.

1.3

Fluid Mechanics encompasses the study of all types of fluids under static, kinematic and dynamic
conditions.

A fluid is a substance that cannot maintain its own shape but takes the shape of its container. Liquid and
gases are both classified as fluids.
3. IMPORTANT PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS

Surface tension leads to capillary effects.
Bulk modulus is involved in the propagation of disturbances like sound waves in fluids.
Vapour pressure can cause flow disturbances due to evaporation at locations of low pressure.
4. COMPRESSIBLE AND INCOMPRESSIBLE FLUIDS
Compressible fluid - the density of a fluid varies significantly due to moderate changes in pressure or
temperature. Generally gases and vapours under normal conditions can be classified as compressible fluids.
Incompressible fluid - the change in density of a fluid is small due to changes in temperature and or
pressure. liquids are classified under this category.
5. IDEAL AND REAL FLUIDS
Ideal Fluids are fluids that have no viscosity, incompressible, no resistance to shear, no eddy currents and
no friction between moving surfaces.
Real Fluids are fluids that are compressible, non-uniform velocity distributions and have friction and
turbulence in flow.

resulting rate of deformation.
Non-Newtonian Fluids (1) are real fluids like pastes, gels, electrolyte solutions, slurries, etc.
Non Newtonian Fluids (2) - classified as simple non Newtonian, ideal plastic and shear thinning, shear
thickening and real plastic fluids. In non Newtonian fluids the viscosity will vary with variation in the rate of
deformation.

## 11. SURFACE TENSION AND CAPILLARY ACTION

Surface Tension is the membrane formed on the free surface of the fluid which is due to cohesive forces.
The reason why insects were able to sit on water is due to surface tension. The amount of surface tension
decreases as the temperature increases.
Capillary Action this is done through the behaviour of surface tension between the liquid and a vertical
solid surface.

independent of the shape of the container. The pressure is the same at all points on a given horizontal
plane in the fluid. The pressure increases with depth in the fluid.
2. Any two points at the same elevation in a continuous mass of the same static fluid will be at the same
pressure.

## 16. BASIC SCIENTIFIC LAWS USED IN THE ANALYSIS OF FLUID FLOW

1. Law of conservation of mass: This law when applied to a control volume states that the net mass flow
through the volume will equal the mass stored or removed from the volume. Under conditions of steady
flow this will mean that the mass leaving the control volume should be equal to the mass entering the
volume. The determination of flow velocity for a specified mass flow rate and flow area is based on the
continuity equation derived on the basis of this law.
2. Newtons laws of motion: These are basic to any force analysis under various conditions of flow. The
resultant force is calculated using the condition that it equals the rate of change of momentum. The
reaction on surfaces are calculated on the basis of these laws. Momentum equation for flow is derived
based on these laws.
3. Law of conservation of energy: Considering a control volume the law can be stated as the energy flow
into the volume will equal the energy flow out of the volume under steady conditions. This also leads to
the situation that the total energy of a fluid element in a steady flow field is conserved. This is the basis
for the derivation of Euler and Bernoulli equations for fluid flow.
4. Thermodynamic laws: are applied in the study of flow of compressible fluids.
17. FLOW RATES

## FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS LAW ON CONSERVATION OF ENERGY

-

states that when each of two systems is in equilibrium with a third, the first two systems
must be in equilibrium with each other. This shared property of equilibrium is the
temperature.
states that when two bodies have equality of temperature with a third body, they in turn
have equality of temperature with each other and the three bodies are said to be in thermal
equilibrium. The third body is usually a thermometer.

states that, because energy cannot be created or destroyed [setting aside the later
ramifications of the equivalence of mass and energy (Nuclear Energy)] the amount of heat
transferred into a system plus the amount of work done on the system must result in a
corresponding increase of internal energy in the system. Heat and work are mechanisms by
which systems exchange energy with one another.
states that during any cycle a system undergoes, the cyclic integral of heat is proportional to
the cyclic integral of work or for any system, total energy entering = total energy leaving.

## SECOND LAW OF THERMODYMANICS ENTROPY

- states that the entropy that is, the disorder of an isolated system can never decrease.
Thus, when an isolated system achieved a configuration of maximum entropy, it can no
longer undergo change: It has reached equilibrium.
Significant statements:
- Clausius: It is impossible for a self-acting machine unaided by an external agency to move
heat from one body to another at a higher temperature.
- Kelvin-Planck: It is impossible to construct a heat engine which, while operating in a cycle
produces no effects except to do work and exchange heat with a single reservoir.
- All spontaneous processes result in a more probable state
- The entropy of an isolated system never decreases.
- No actual or ideal heat engine operating in cycles can convert into work all the heat supplied
to the working substance.
- Caratheodory: In the vicinity of any particular state 2 of a system, there exist neighboring
states 1 that are inaccessible via an adiabatic change from state 2.

19.4

## THIRD LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS - ABSOLUTE TEMPERATURE

-

states that absolute zero cannot be attained by any procedure in a finite number of steps.
Absolute zero can be approached arbitrarily closely, but it can never be reached.
- The entropy of a substance of absolute temperature is zero.
20. THERMODYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM
Thermodynamic Equilibrium is a condition when a system is in equilibrium with regard to all possible
changes in state.
21. CONSERVATION OF MASS
The law of conservation of mass states that the mass is indestructible.

23. HEAT OR THERMAL ENGINE
Heat engine or Thermal Engine (1) is a thermodynamic system that operates continuously with only energy
(heat and work) crossing its boundaries; its boundaries are impervious to the flow of mass.
Heat engine or Thermal Engine (2) a closed system (no mass crosses its boundaries) that exchanges only
heat and work with its surroundings and that operate in cycles.

25. AVAILABILITY
Availability of a closed system is the maximum work that the system could conceivably deliver to
something other than the surroundings as its state changes to the dead state, exchanging heat only with the
environment.
Availability of a steady-flow system is the maximum work that can conceivably be delivered by, say, a unit
mass of the system to something other than the surroundings as this unit mass changes from its state at the
entrance to the control volume to the dead state at the exit boundary, meanwhile exchanging heat only
with the surroundings.
26. REVERSIBILITY
Reversibility (1) - a characteristic of certain processes (changes of a system from an initial state to a final

restored to its initial state, without leaving net effects in any of the systems involved.
Reversibility (2) - is a process that can be "reversed" by means of infinitesimal changes in some property of
the system without loss or dissipation of energy
27. IRREVERSIBILITY
Irreversibility - a change in the thermodynamic state of a system and all of its surroundings cannot be
precisely restored to its initial state by infinitesimal changes in some property of the system without
expenditure of energy.

Equilibrium - is the condition of a system in which competing influences are balanced.
Mechanical equilibrium - the state in which the sum of the forces, and torque, on each particle of the system
is zero. Also means that the system is not accelerating.
Thermal equilibrium - a state where an object and its surroundings cease to exchange energy in the form of
heat, i.e. they are at the same temperature.
Chemical equilibrium - the state in which the concentrations of the reactants and products have no net
change over time. Also a system has no tendency to undergo further chemical reaction.
Thermodynamic equilibrium - the state of a thermodynamic system which is in thermal, mechanical, and
chemical equilibrium. Also the system has no tendency toward spontaneous change meaning a change
without outside influence.

## 42. THERMODYNAMIC SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES

Thermodynamic Process is the path of the succession of states through which the system passes.
Cyclic Process or Cycle is a process where a system in a given initial state goes through a number of
different changes in state (going through various processes) and finally returns to its initial values.
Reversible Process is defined as a process that, once having taken place, can be reversed, and in so doing
leaves no change in either the system or surroundings.
Irreversible Process is a process that cannot return both the system and the surroundings to their original
conditions. That is, the system and the surroundings would not return to their original conditions if the
process was reversed.
Adiabatic Process is one in which there is no heat transfer into or out of the system. The system can be
considered to be perfectly insulated.
Isentropic Process is one in which the entropy of the fluid remains constant. This will be true if the process
the system goes through is reversible and adiabatic. An isentropic process can also be called a constant
entropy process.
Polytropic Process is a process when a gas undergoes a reversible process in which there is heat transfer,
the process frequently takes place in such a manner that a plot of the Log P (pressure) vs Log V (volume) is a
straight line. Or stated in equation form PV n = a constant.
Throttling Process is defined as a process in which there is no change in enthalpy from state one to state
two, h1 = h2 ; no work is done, W = 0 ; and the process is adiabatic, Q = 0 .
Isobaric Process is an internally reversible (quasistatic, if nonflow) process of a pure substance during
which the pressure remains constant.
Isometric Process (Isochoric Process) a constant volume process that is internally reversible (quasi-static if
nonflow), involving a pure substance.
Isothermal Process is an internally reversible (quasistatic, if nonflow) constant temperature process of a
pure substance.

1. Engineering Economics
Engineering Economics is the study of the cost factors involved in engineering projects, and using the
results of such study in employing the most efficient cost-saving techniques without affecting the safety and
soundness of the project
2. Definitions
Investment is the sum total of first cost (fixed capital) and working capital which is being put up in a
project with the aim of getting a profit.
Fixed Capital is a part of the investment which is required to acquire or set up the business.
Working Capital is the amount of money set aside as part of the investment to keep the project or
Demand is the quantity of a certain commodity that is bought at a certain price at a given place and time.
Supply is the quantity of a certain commodity that is offered for sale at certain price at a given place.
Perfect Competition is a business condition in which a product or service is supplied by a number of
vendors and there is no restriction against additional vendors entering the market.
Monopoly is a business condition in which as unique product or service is available from only one supplier
and that supplier can prevent the entry of all others into the market.
Oligopoly is a condition in which there are so few suppliers of a product or service that action by one will
almost result in similar action by the others.
Law of Supply and Demand - Under conditions of perfect competition, the price of a product will be such
that supply and demand are equal.
Law of Diminishing Returns When the use of one of the factors of production is limited, either in
increasing cost or by absolute quantity, a point will be reached beyond which an increase in the variable
factors will result in a less than proportionate increase output.
3. Interest
Interest is the money paid for the use of borrowed money.
4. Simple Interest
Simple interest is the interest paid on the principal (money lent) only.
I = Pni
F = P + I = P + Pni = P (1 + ni )

Where:
F = future value
P = present value
n = number of interest period
i = interest rate per period

17. Depreciation
Depreciation is the decrease in value of a physical property due to the passage of time. Depreciation of a
property is an example of capitalization.
17.1
Types of Depreciation
17.1.1 Physical depreciation is a type of depreciation caused by the lessening of the physical
ability of the property to produce results, such as physical damage, wear and tear.

Page 6

17.2

17.3

## 17.1.2 Functional depreciation is a type of depreciation caused by the lessening in the

demand for which the property is designed to render, such as obsolescence and
Purposes of Depreciation
17.2.1 To provide for the recovery of capital invested in the property.
17.2.2 To enable the cost of depreciation to be charged to the cost of producing the products
turned out by the property.
Depreciation Terms
First Cost (FC) is the total amount invested on the property until the property is put into
operation.
Economic Life (n) is the length of time at which a property can be operated at a profit.
Valuation (Appraisal) is the process of determining the value or worth of a physical property
for specific reasons.
Value is the present worth of all the future profits that are to be received through ownership
of the property.

17.4

Classification of Values
Market value is the price that will be paid by a willing buyer to a willing seller for a property
where each has equal advantage and is under no compulsion to buy or sell.
Book value (BV) is the worth of a property as shown in the accounting records of an
enterprise.
Salvage or resale value (SV) is the price of a property when sold second-hand; also called
Scrap value (SV) is the price of a property when sold for junk.
Fair value is the worth of a property as determined by a disinterested party which is fair to
Use value is the worth of property as an operating unit.
Face or par value (F) is the amount that appears on the bond which is the price at which the
bond is first bought.
18. Methods of Computing Depreciation

19. Depletion - is the decrease in value of property due to the gradual extraction of its contents, such as mining
properties, oil wells, timber lands and other consumable resources.
Two Methods of Depletion
19.1
Cost Depletion is based on the level of activity or usage, not time, as in depreciation. It may be
applied to most types of natural resources.
Cost depletion factor for year t is the ratio of the first cost of the resource to the estimated
number of units recoverable.

Page 9

## E - ENGINEERING ECONOMICS (LECTURE)

pt =

first cost
resource capacity

The annual depletion charge is pt times the years usage or volume. The total cost depletion
cannot exceed the first cost of the resource. If the capacity of the property is reestimated some
year in the future, a new cost depletion factor is determined based upon the undepleted
amount and the new capacity estimate.
19.2

Percentage Depletion is a special consideration given for natural resources. A constant, stated
percentage of the resources gross income may be depleted each year provided it does not
exceed 50% of the companys taxable income. For oil and gas property, the limit is 100% of
taxable income. The annual depletion amount is calculates as
Percentage depletion amount = percentage x gross income from property
Using percentage depletion, total depletion charges may exceed first cost with no
limitation.

## 20. Capital Recovery (Factors of Annual Cost)

22. Break-Even Analysis
Break-even analysis is a method of determining the income to equal the expenses or the costs of two
alternatives are equal.
Break-even point is the value of a certain variable for which the costs of two alternatives are equal.

Income = Expenses
P(x ) = M ( x ) + L( x ) + V ( x ) + FC

Where:
x = no. of units produced and sold
P = selling price per unit
M = material cost per unit
L = labor cost per unit
V = variable cost per unit
FC = first cost
23.1
Individual Ownership or Single Proprietorship - Is also termed as sole proprietorship and is the
type of ownership in business where individual exercises and enjoy rights in their own interest.
The owner has the total control of the business and makes all decisions.

## 27. Selection of Alternatives

27.1
Present Economy
This involves selection of alternatives in which interest or time value of money is not a factor.
Studies usually involve the selection between alternative designs, materials, or methods.
27.2
Rate of Return
Rate of return is usually stated in percent per year and is an effective annual interest rate. The
alternative which gives a higher rate of return on investment is then the favorable choice.
27.3
Payout Period
Payout period this usually expressed in years and is the length of time for the net annual profit
to equal the initial investment.
27.4
Annual Cost
Annual Cost = Depreciation + Interest on Capital + Operation and Maintenance + Other out-ofpocket Expenses

31. Principles of Accounting
31.1
Bookkeeping System
Bookkeeping system is used to record all financial transactions of the company. All
transactions are recorded in a journal then categorized and posted in a ledger. A ledger is
classified into asset, liability and owners equity.
31.2
Balancing System
Balancing system where balancing the book means maintaining the equality of the basic
accounting equation:
Assets = Liability + Owners Equity

31.3

31.4

## Double entry bookkeeping system - is a balancing system by maintaining the equality by

entering each transaction into two ledger accounts. All transactions are either debits or credits.
For liability and owners equity, credit increases the account and debt decreases the account.
Cash System
Cash system is the simplest form of bookkeeping system and transactions recorded into the
journals are the present cash and expenses.
Financial Statements
Financial statements the process of determining the success or failure of the company.
Financial statements are usually evaluated by accountants, business management and
stockholders.
31.4.1 Two Types of Financial Statements
31.4.1.1
Balance sheet is the presentation of the basic accounting equation.
31.4.1.2
Profit and loss statement is the presentation of income source and
expenses. This is also known as statement of income and retained
earnings. Examples of income or revenue are sales, interest, etc. and for
expenses are salaries, supplies, utilities, etc.
31.4.2 Terms used in the Balance Sheets
31.4.2.1
Current assets also known as liquid assets and defined as cash and
other assets that can be converted quickly into cash such as accounts
receivable and merchandise.
