Mechanics 2: Dynamics

MET 2200 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Expands and uses the underlying principles and concepts of Newtonian mechanics to study, analyze, and solve problems relative to mechanical systems in motion. Explores approaches to analyze motion both neglecting and considering the cause of motion and their relationship to the design of engineering systems. Discusses subjects pertaining to the study of kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies in detail. Topics include linear, curvilinear, and rotational motion of particles and rigid bodies, as well as conservation principles and concepts and inherent definitions for the analysis and design of dynamic systems such as velocity, acceleration, linear and angular momentum, impulse, forces, work, kinetic and potential energy, total mechanical energy, and power.  


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
