The goal of this course is, by providing the calculus-based concepts of mechanics, to establish the relationships between mathematics, physics and engineering and apply the physical science to define and solve engineering problems. The students who succeeded in this course; To understand and apply solving problems of mechanics that lead to the understanding the fundamentals of related fields in engineering sciences. To understand the conceptual topics of mechanics and apply to engineering problems. To apply and integrate the basic science and the principles of engineering science. To enhance students` ability and motivation to solve unsolved problems in various fields To provide a useful introduction to the subject for engineering students to give them the opportunity to establish conceptual relations between mechanics and a wide range of topics of engineering science Measurement, motion along a straight line, vectors, motion in two and three dimensions, force and motion I, force and motion II, kinetic energy and work, potential energy and conservation of energy, center of mass and linear momentum, rotation, rolling, torque, and angular momentum, equilibrium and elasticity.
