EGR 320 - Engineering Dynamics (3)

Prerequisite: EGR 218  or PHY 218  or permission.
Like statics, dynamics is part of the physical science--mechanics--that deals with the state (rest or motion) of solid bodies under the action of forces. While statics is concerned with the equilibrium of bodies, dynamics studies the accelerated motion of a solid body. In this course, the subject of dynamics will be presented in two parts: kinematics, which treats only the geometric aspects of the motion, and kinetics, which investigates the analysis of the forces causing the motion. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to solve kinetic and kinematic problems as well as apply the principles of work and energy, conservation of energy, impulse and momentum, and conservation of momentum to the solution of engineering problems involving particles and systems of particles.
