MECH 228 Kinematics And Dynamics
This course will cover the following topics in the field of dynamics. Kinematics of particles: planar and three-dimensional motion (rectilinear, curvilinear), choosing a coordinate system, conversions between systems, space curvilinear motion using vector derivatives, free and constrained paths, relative motion between particles. Kinetics of systems of particles: generalized Newton's Second Law, work and energy, impulse and momentum, conservation of energy and momentum, impact. Students will solve dynamics problems analytically and computationally in an active learning environment.
