EGR 212 - Dynamics
This course is designed to introduce the student to vector development of kinematics of particles and rigid bodies with respect to fixed and moving coordinate systems of one, two, and three dimensions. The primary focus of the course is on the concepts the dynamics of particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies, angular momentum and the inertia properties of rigid bodies, as well as, energy, impulse and momentum methods
- Describe and analyze the motion of a particle along a straight line.
- Utilize Newton’s second law to determine the acceleration of an object and/or the forces acting on an object.
- Apply the concepts of work and energy to determine the change in linear velocity of an object.
- Practice the concepts of impulse and momentum to analyze the motion of an object during a period of time and to determine velocities of objects after impact.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of both EGR 210 and MAT 291.
