ENGR 2080 - Dynamics

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This course is a study of rigid body motion and the forces that cause motion. Topics include particle dynamics, planar kinematics, kinetics of a rigid body, and mechanical vibrations. Design of elementary dynamic systems is integrated throughout this engineering course.
