Program: BS Mathematics
Course Name: Mechanics I
Credit Hours: 4
Semester: 1st Fall 2016
Course instructor: Abdus Sattar
The main objective of this course is;
i. To understand the different motions of objects on a macroscopic scale
ii. To develop simple mathematical formalisms to analyze such motions.
After finishing the course the student should be able to:
1. Central mechanical quantities as force and moment and Background and use of
the equations of equilibrium.

2. The behavior of typical components of particle dynamics, Center of mass etc.

3. Understand Gravitation, momentum and their examples

The course will run for 16 weeks and comprises of 4 lecture of one hour each per
