Studies kinematics, Newton's law of motion, and work-energy and impulse-momentum relationships as applied to engineering systems.

Learning outcomes

1. Identify and apply kinematic and dynamic equations for a particle in Cartesian, cylindrical and path coordinates.
2. Apply methods of work-energy and impulse-momentum to describe the motion of a particle.
3. Apply the parallel axis theorem to determine moments of inertia of a body for specified axes.
4. Apply relative motion concepts using translating and rotating reference frames for 2-dimensional systems.
5. Apply Newton’s equations to solve problems involving rigid bodies in plane motion.
