MNTC 302 Engineering Physics
This course further develops physical concepts of mechanics and electromagnetism in the context of engineering applications. The first part of the course focuses on the mechanics of solid materials, building upon knowledge of rigid-body mechanics and introducing students to the concepts of material strength and elastic deformation. These concepts will be applied to structural members such as rods, columns, shafts, and beams, with loading conditions such as tension, compression, bending, and torsion. The second part of the course focuses on basic direct-current (DC) electrical circuitry and components including electric motors. Students will study concepts such as voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, and inductance. Simple circuit analysis using Kirchoff's laws will be presented, and the sizing and integration of electric motors both electrically and mechanically will be introduced. Available Online.
