PHYS 242 - Dynamics


3 credits (3 lecture)
This course provides a detailed review of the concepts of force, mass, and acceleration via Newton’s Laws of Motion. Vector algebra and scalar techniques will be used to analyze the relationships between forces and their resultant motions. Free-body diagrams will be used to solve various engineering problems. Particular subject areas will include kinematics and kinetics of particles, and plane kinematics and kinetics of rigid bodies.
Prerequisite(s): PHYS 241 and MATH 222.
