PHYS 1219: Engineering Mechanics
|Course Format||Lecture 4.0 h + Seminar 2.0 h + Lab. 0.0 h|
This course is designed for (although not restricted to) students in the University Transfer Engineering Program. Topics include statics of particles, equilibrium of rigid bodies, rigid body statics and internal forces; kinematics: rectilinear motion; dynamics: Newton's 2nd law, friction, impulse, momentum, work, and energy. Emphasis is placed throughout on the analysis of practical mechanics problems using freebody diagram techniques. Students are encouraged to complete MATH 1271 or 1273 before, or concurrently, with PHYS 1219.
Prerequisite(s): PHYS 1115 with a "C+" grade or higher, or PHYS 1125 with a "C" grade or higher; and MATH 1153 or MATH 1253 or MATH 1171 or MATH 1173. MATH 1153, 1253 or MATH 1171 may be taken concurrently with PHYS 1219.
