# ENGR& 215 Dynamics

5 credits
This course covers a vector treatment of kinematics and kinetics of particles in rectilinear and curvilinear motion followed by the study of rigid bodies in general plane motion. Newton’s Second Law, along with the principles of work and energy, impulse and momentum, and conservation of energy, will be applied to a large selection of problems dealing with the interactions of bodies and force systems.

Prerequisites: ENGR& 214  and MATH& 152

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

• Analyze motions of bodies
• Solve problems focused on motion of a particle or rigid body
• Critically evaluate a proposal, claim, process, or theory
• Properly apply the rules for handling significant relation between forces, mass property, and kinetics of a mechanical system
• Perform dimensional and unit analysis
• Manipulate formulas to perform sensitivity analysis of systems in one or more variables
• Apply Newton’s Law, work and energy principle equations, and impulse and momentum concepts in engineering and science
• Demonstrate application of engineering problem solving processes
• Use appropriate quantitative tools to respond to scientific questions, represent data, and document scientific findings.
• Participate in developing functional project teams
• Effectively communicate with fellow team members, the public, and members of the scientific community using written, oral, and visual communication methods
• Articulate that science relies on evidence and that scientific knowledge is tentative, open to revision, falsifiable, and subject to constraints
