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.
