EM 216 Statics and Dynamics

Credits: (4-0) 4

Statics: The study of effects of external forces acting on stationary rigid bodies in equilibrium. Frames and machines, friction, centroids and moments of inertia on areas and mass are discussed. Dynamics: Newton’s laws of motion are applied to particles and rigid bodies. Topics considered are absolute and relative motion; force, mass, and acceleration (or particles and rigid bodies); work and energy; and impulse and momentum (of particles).

Prerequisites: MATH 123  with a “C” or better
