VI. Catalog Course Description
This course provides a non-calculus analysis of Newton’s first law from an applications standpoint as it pertains to particles and rigid bodies. It utilizes algebra and trigonometry for application to problems involving force systems, equilibrium, and structures.
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 applied engineering statics;
      2. analyze concurrent forces, the statics of particles, and equivalent force/moment systems of rigid bodies;
      3. evaluate centroids and center of gravity; and
      4. apply the theory learned to the analysis of trusses, frames, and machines.
