Course Objectives The objective of this course is to introduce students with the mathematical description of the plane motion of particles and rigid bodies. The relation between force and motion is studied in detail.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To be able to analyze, formulate, and solve engineering dynamics problems.
  • To be able to design basic dynamic structures/systems.
  • To get acquainted with the relation between force and motion. To be required to be familiar with introductory calculus concepts like integration and differentiation.
  • To be acquainted with basic principles of dynamics prior to machine design courses.
Course Content Two main sections of dynamics; Particles and Rigid Bodies are described with respect to planar motions in this course. Each section has two parts; kinematics and kinetics. Methods of Newton’s second law, work energy and impulse-momentum are emphasized in this course.
