MECH 3113 - Statics, 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ( PHYS 1024 with D or better or PHYS 1044 with D or better or PHYS 1064 with D or better ) and ( MATH 1054 with D or better or MATH 2043 with D or better )

Level: Lower

This course is a study of introductory mechanics through the application of the principles of statics. Students will focus on the equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies in two and three dimensions. Additional topics will include centroids, centers of gravity, and analysis of structures, friction, area and mass moments of inertia. The course will also emphasize the importance of problem-solving in statics by using algebraic and trigonometric computations.
