EGT-136 Dynamics (4)

Deepens student understanding of the geometry of motion (kinematics) and the forces that create it (kinetics) through solving problems involving planar motion of both particles and rigid bodies. Analyzes the kinetics of planar motion using Newton's second law, work/energy and impulse/momentum methods. Covers the basics of vibrations, simple harmonic motion and rocketry.
