ENGR& 215 - Dynamics

5 credits

ENGR& 214  and MATH& 163  with a grade of “C” or better or concurrent enrollment in MATH& 163 .

This is a course in engineering dynamics. Topics include: kinematics, kinetics, dynamics or particles and rigid bodies using vector notation, rectangular coordinates, normal and tangent coordinates, curvilinear motion, work, energy, impulse, momentum, rotation, absolute motion, and relative motion.

Theory Hours
5 theory hours.

AA Specified Elective
Satisfies the requirement for the AS Track 2 degree or specified elective for the AA degree.

Course Outcomes
  • Determine the kinematics of particles in rectilinear and curvilinear motion
  • Solve problems involving the kinetics of particles using Newton’s second law
  • Apply energy and momentum concepts to problems involving the kinetics of particles and rigid bodies
  • Analyze the plane motion of rigid bodies using forces-accelerations and energy-momentum methods
  • Predict the motion of a system of particles using conservation of energy and work concepts
  • Provide absolute and relative-motion analyses of velocity and acceleration using fixed, translating, and rotating frames of reference
  • Solve introductory three-dimensional kinetics of rigid body problems using rectangular, normal, and tangent coordinates
  • Apply principles of engineering dynamics to the design of moving mechanical systems
  • Develop and utilize team skills necessary for the solution of problems in engineering dynamics
  • Report the results of analyses clearly, concisely, and in the required format
