GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: | The student will: 1. Learn relationships between position, velocity, and acceleration. Use these relationships to perform calculations of kinematics of a particle. 2. Calculate forces acting on a particle using the Newton's laws of motion and equations in rectangular, n, t, and cylindrical coordinate systems using scalar and vector analysis. 3. Analyze particle kinetics using work-energy methods. 4. Analyze particle kinetics using Impulse-momentum methods. 5. Calculate positions, velocities, and accelerations of parts of a rigid body using instantaneous centers, relative motion analysis in translating and rotating coordinate systems. Use vector and scalar analysis. 6. Analyze forces acting on a rigid body using equations of motion. 7. Analyze two-dimensional rigid body kinetics with work-energy methods. 8. Analyze two-dimensional rigid body kenosis with impulse-momentum methods. |
