MECHANICS DYNAMICS   [Archived Catalog]
2016-2017 Johnstown Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This second course in mechanics adds the concept of motion to the principles developed in the first course.  Kinematics of rigid bodies as well as particles, including relative motion as well as both simple rectilinear and curvilinear motion are studied.  In addition, kinetic analysis using Newton's second law, work-energy methods, and impulse momentum techniques will be applied to those same systems. The free-body, diagram rational analysis of rigid bodies will be emphasized.
