Kinematics and dynamics of the threedimensional motion of particles; kinematics and dynamics of the plane motion of rigid bodies; methods of work energy and impulse momentum; moving reference frames. Kinematic and kinetic aspects of motion modeling applied to rigid bodies and mechanisms. Focus on freebodyanalysis. Use of workenergy and impulsemomentum motion prediction methods. Use of Cartesian and simple nonCartesian coordinate systems. Rotational motion, angular momentum, and rotational kineticenergy modeling; body mass rotational moment of inertia. Relativevelocity and acceleration.
The student will be able to utilize forces, momentum, and energy to determine the motion of rigid bodies in three dimensions. Likewise, students should be able to determine the motion of a body based upon the forces acting upon it.
