ES 2120 - Dynamics

This course covers kinematics, including linear and angular displacement, velocity, acceleration and simple harmonic motion of particles and rigid bodies; moments of inertia and radii of gyration of masses; the application of principles of force-mass acceleration, work-kinetic energy, impulse and momentum to solution of problems of force systems acting on moving bodies.

Credits: 3
