VI. Catalog Course Description
This course provides an overview of calculus-based engineering dynamics. It is a continuation of Engineering Statics. Topics include: second moments, particle kinematics and dynamics, rigid body kinematics and dynamics, work-energy concepts, and vibrations.
VII. Required Course Content and Direction
  1. Learning Goals:

    1. Course
    2. Students will:
      1. evaluate the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of engineering dynamics;
      2. analyze the kinematics of particles and rigid bodies;
      3. evaluate force and acceleration of particles and rigid bodies;
      4. analyze work and energy and impulse and momentum of particles and rigid bodies; and
      5. apply the theory learned to the analysis of vibrations of rigid bodies.
