Engineering Mechanics Introduction Engineering Mechanics: It is physical science that deals with the conditions of rest and motion of bodies under the action of force.Mechanics of rigid bodies: It deals with bodies that do not deform under the action of force. sound .Mechanics of fluids: It deals with bodies that have no certain shape such as: liquid and gas. displacement .velocity .Mechanics of deformable bodies: It deals with bodies which deform under the action of force. 3.Dynamics: deals with bodies at motion.International system (SI units) length in meter (m) .Scalar quantities : are the quantities which have only magnitude .5938 kg 1 ft = 0. 2. distance . size . weight . Divisions of rigid bodies’ mechanics . .English system length in foot (ft) . such as :Time . System of units : . mass in Kilogram (Kg). force in Pound (Ib) Unit conversion: l lb = 4.Static: deals with bodies at rest. . Type of mechanics 1. speed . density .3048 m Useful trigonometric relation : 2 . Vector & Scalar quantities . volume .4482 N 1 slug = 14. force in Newton (N) . acceleration .Vector quantities : are the quantities which have magnitude and direction such as: Force . mass in Slug. light .
