Course Outcomes: 


1 (a) Understand the kinematics of particles and be able to perform rectilinear and curvilinear analysis of particle motion described in appropriate coordinate systems.

Laws of Motion

2 (a) Understand Newton's Laws of Motion and be able to write and solve the equations of motion for particles and systems of particles in appropriate coordinate systems.

Work and Energy

3 (e) Understand the principles of Work and Energy and Impulse and Momentum as they apply to particles and systems of particles and be able to solve problems appropriate thereto.

Motion of Rigid Bodies

4 (e) Be able to determine the motion of rigid bodies in translation and rotation about a fixed axis and to understand the principles associate with general plane motion.

Problem Solving

5 (e) Be able to apply the principles of Force and Acceleration, Work and Energy, and Impulse and Momentum to rigid bodies and to solve problems appropriate thereto.
