MECH 4024 - Dynamics, 4 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ( MATH 1063 with D or better or MATH 1084 with D or better ) and ( MECH 2603 with D or better or MECH 3113 with D or better )

Level: Lower

The course will emphasize applications of material involving the two basic concepts of dynamics, i.e., kinematics and kinetics and will introduce the students to vibrations. The course will include the study of levers, links, slide mechanisms, scotch yoke and the principles of force, torque, velocity, acceleration, inertia and friction. The course will use the principals of Equilibrium, Work-Energy and Impulse-Momentum along with Newton's Second Law to examine a variety of problems.
