Course Text
Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 13th Edition by R. C. Hibbeler, Publisher: Pearson.
ISBN-10:0-13-291127-2 and/or ISBN-13:978-0-13-291127-6.

PREREQUISITES: ENGR 2214, MATH 2254

Course Goals
The Engineering Dynamics course deals with the analysis of bodies in motion. It includes kinematics,
which is the study of the geometry of motion, and kinetics, which is the study of the relation existing
between the forces acting on a body, the mass of the body, and the motion of the body. The basic
objectives of this course are to provide an understanding of the effects of external forces and moments
acting on solid bodies in motion, and introduce the concepts of work-energy and impulse-momentum
for rigid bodies.

2015-2016 Catalog Description:


Study of the mechanics of particles and rigid bodies. Topics covered include: kinematics and kinetics
of particles; work and kinetic energy; impulse and momentum; rigid body motions; relative motion;
and moving coordinate systems.

Instructor Expectations
Students are expected to complete the discussion assignments and/or several homework problems per
chapter as assigned. The discussion assignments listed at the end of each module are primarily intended
to ensure that the students actually review the multimedia content and provide feedback to the
instructor about how informative and comprehensible the module was for the student. Students may
work together on discussion assignments, but they MUST submit their work individually, as it is also
graded. Within each assignment, the discussion assignment grade depends only on the quality of the
topics understood and muddiest topics posted. In working homework problems, students are expected
to do the following:
1. State any assumptions
2. List any equations used
3. Show all work (including graphical synthesis) used to obtain the solution
4. Write legibly
The student is also expected to perform satisfactorily the three exams, and a final exam. Each one can
be made up of a combination of true/false, short answer, and/or multiple choice questions, BUT
MOSTLY PROBLEMS. Students are expected to complete each exam within the allotted time periods
for each of the exams.
Help resources, backup procedures and strategies to cover unexpected events, including PowerPoint
presentations of the modules, are included in Brightspace D2L under Course Resources. Posted help
resources for students with technical issues are available on campus, online, and most hours.

Learning Objectives and Course Outline


The overall goal for the course is for the student to be able to solve problems involving position, velocity
and acceleration of material points or particles in rectilinear or curvilinear motion. Students will be able to
determine the kinematics of rigid bodies in plane and 3D motion. Also, the student will be able to write
kinetic equations of particles or mass centers as well as apply these equations to particle motion using the
principles of work and kinetic energy and impulse and momentum. Finally, the student will be able to
determine the kinetics of rigid bodies in plane motion.

As a summary, in general, upon completion of the course, the students should be able to:
1. Work particle kinematics and kinetics problems in Cartesian, normal-tangential, and cylindrical
coordinates, applying calculus.
2. Analyze dependent motion of particles.
3. Apply the principal of work and energy to particles and rigid bodies in planar motion,
4. Apply the principals of conservation of momentum, and of impulse and momentum to particles
and rigid bodies in planar motion,
5. Find and use instantaneous centers of zero velocity to solve velocity problems,
6. Solve problems involving direct and eccentric impact, and
7. Find centroids and mass moments of inertia of rigid bodies using calculus.

In general, the students completing this course will be able to achieve an understanding and
solve problems in these topics:

Course Outline (Chapter Topics/Modules Covered)

Module 1 - Rectilinear (1-Dimensional) Kinematics of Material Points or Particles


The student shall demonstrate the knowledge to solve material point or particle problems in
rectilinear (1-Dimensional) motion (position, velocity and acceleration) using rectangular
Cartesian coordinates. This includes motion of a projectile and absolute dependent motion
analysis of two particles, relative-motion of two particles using translating axes.

Module 2 - Curvilinear (2 and 3 Dimensional) Kinematics of Material Points or Particles


The student shall demonstrate the knowledge to solve material point or particle problems using
general curvilinear (2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional) coordinates. Solutions to problems are
determined using polar and cylindrical coordinates (radial and transverse directions) and
tangential and normal components.
~EXAM #1~
Module 3 - Kinematics of Rigid Bodies in Plane Motion (Velocity Analysis)
Students shall be able to determine the position and velocity of rigid bodies in plane motion.
This includes determining the angular velocity of points on a rigid body.

~Exercise #1~
Module 4 - Kinematics of Rigid Bodies in Plane Motion (Acceleration Analysis)
Students shall be able to determine the position, velocity and acceleration of rigid bodies in
plane motion. This includes determining the instantaneous center of zero velocity and the
velocity and the acceleration and angular acceleration of points on a rigid body.

Module 5 - Kinetics of Particles and Mass Centers (Newtons Law)


Students shall be able to determine the kinetics of a particle or a system of particles using
Newtons Second Law of Motion, and the equation of motion for a system of particles (using
rectangular coordinates, normal and tangential coordinates, and cylindrical coordinates).
~EXAM #2~
Module 6 - Kinetics of Particles and Mass Centers (Work and Energy Principles)
Students shall be able to determine the kinetics of a particle or a system of particles using work
and energy principles, the work of a force, and the principle of work. Power and efficiency is
studied, as well as the conservation of energy.

Module 7 - Kinetics of Particles and Mass Centers (Impulse, Momentum and Impact)
Students shall be able to determine the impulse and momentum of a particle or a system of
particles by the principle of linear impulse and momentum and the conservation of linear
momentum. Impact of particles is also studied.

Module 8 - Kinetics of Rigid Bodies in Plane Motion


Students shall be able to determine the moment of momentum (angular momentum) of a rigid
body and the moments and products of inertia, including using the parallel axis theorem. The
planar kinetic equation of motion is used along with Eulers Second Law. Work and kinetic
energy relations are used, and well as the relation between moment of a force and angular
momentum.
~FINAL EXAM~

Course Procedures
The subject areas will mostly be covered through online lectures, reading assignments, and videos. It is
your responsibility to get the assignments and have them completed on time. Late assignments
will NOT be accepted. The exams and the final exam will be on the specified dates. The student must
attend every exam at the scheduled time and date. Absence from any exam without prior approval
results in a zero for that exam. Make-up exams will NOT be given. NOTE: There is no curving of
final grades! Your textbook should be purchased and used for reading assignments and homework.
Homework Policy
There will be a penalty of 20 points assessed against your score for each late day.
Grading Rubrics

Pet-Peeve!
Under no circumstances should an assignment, quiz or exam be turned in with writing on the back of
any sheet. If so, there will be a penalty of 10 points assessed against your score for each incident. For
example, if you write on the back of 2 sheets of an exam, you will lose 20 points!
Disclaimer:
To the question which one may ask in the distance future, Is there anything I can do to improve my
grade or pass this class? I answer today, Work like you already have an F! Everyone starts from a
grade of zero and works toward a passing grade. In that spirit, paying tuition, attending class, working
hard and participating in class are necessary but not sufficient conditions to ensure a passing grade for
the course. One will only pass this course by demonstrating a fundamental understanding of Dynamics
and such understanding must manifest itself on homework, quizzes, projects and exams! To the best
of my ability, I will present you with the tools necessary to demonstrate such breadth and depth of
knowledge of the subject matter. I AM HERE TO SERVE YOU, that's my responsibility. You must
understand that it is your responsibility to master and demonstrate a working knowledge of the subject
matter!

Student Conduct
The high quality of education at Kennesaw State University is reflected in the credits and degrees its students
earn. All assignments that take place in and out of the classroom must be your own work and original for
this course. The protection of these high standards is crucial since the validity and equity of the University's
grades and degrees depend upon it. Any student found to have violated any KSU academic honesty regulation
after a hearing before a university hearing panel or before the Vice President for Student Success and
Enrollment Services (or his/her designee) shall be suspended for at least one semester, unless the student
persuades the deciding body that the circumstances of his or her behavior substantially mitigate the gravity of
the violation. These regulations are designed to assist students in (1) developing appropriate attitudes about, and
(2) understanding and following the universitys standards relating to academic honesty. The regulations protect
students by helping them avoid committing infractions that may compromise the completion of their KSU
degrees or damage their reputations.

Student Conduct Pledge/Statement: As a member of the Kennesaw State University community of scholars, I
understand that my actions are not only a reflection on myself, but also a reflection on the University and the
larger body of scholars of which it is a part. Acting unethically, no matter how minor the offense, will be
detrimental to my academic progress and self-image. It will also adversely affect all students, faculty, staff, the
reputation of this University, and the value of the degrees it awards. Whether on campus or online, I
understand that it is not only my personal responsibility, but also a duty to the entire KSU community that I act
in a manner consistent with the highest level of academic integrity. Therefore, I promise that as a member of
the Kennesaw State University community, I will not participate in any form of academic misconduct.

ELECTRONIC RECORDING AND SOCIAL MEDIA


Electronic recording performed without the consent of the people being recorded chills the free exchange of
ideas. Academic freedom, free inquiry, and freedom of expression should not be limited by the fear that ones
brainstorming, polemic discourse, speculative inquiry, or any other kind of expressed curiosity made within the
space of a university classroom will be made public without ones consent. This fear is unacceptable regardless
of whether one is in an online, hybrid, or face-to-face classroom setting. Accordingly, no person shall make
public any electronically recorded class discussion without the written permission of the instructor. This policy
is not intended to discourage electronic recording in the classroom or the use of social media when such actions
are performed with the written consent of the instructor, and others as appropriate. Note: Faculty accommodate
all reasonable requests to electronically record a class discussion; these requests must be documented by the
Disabled Student Support Services available at: http://www.kennesaw.edu/stu_dev/dsss/prospect.shtml
