# ENGR 212 - Dynamics

4 Credit(s)

This is a fundamental dynamics course about analysis of motions of particles and rigid bodies encountered in engineering. Topics include kinematics and kinetics of particles and kinematics of rigid bodies; Newton's second law of motion; rectilinear and curvilinear motion; linear and angular momentum; principles of work and energy; impulse and momentum and D'Alembert's Principle.

Prerequisite: ENGR 211  and MTH 254 , all completed with a grade of C- or better within the past two years
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Demonstrate appropriate application of the equations of kinematics to situations involving motion of a particle in space
2. Demonstrate appropriate application of Newton's Second Law and the equations of kinetics to situations involving motion of a particle in space
3. Demonstrate appropriate application of the equations of kinematics to situations involving motion of a rigid body in space
4. Solve dynamics problems visually using vector geometry
5. Solve dynamics problems using algebraic vector analysis and calculus in each of the following types of coordinate systems: path (nt), rectangular (2D & 3D), polar, cylindrical, spherical, translating (2D) and rotating (2D)
