(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture, 1 hour tutorial, 1 hour lab
This course introduces the basic principles of Vector Mechanics as applied to Dynamics. The course content emphasizes kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies, rectilinear and curvilinear translation, general plane motion, rotation, relative motion, force, mass, acceleration, friction, impulse, momentum and conservation of linear and angular momenta. Evaluation of knowledge and problem solving skills takes place through written assignments, quizzes, midterms and an exam.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 1217 or equivalent, and Engineering 1205 or equivalent, both with a C- or higher.
