ENGR 16, Dynamics 3 units
Transfer: UC, CSU • Prerequisite: Engineering 12.
This course provides essential tools for predicting the behavior and motion of engineering systems under the influence of forces. Successful prediction of the behavior of a system requires a careful formulation of the problems through both physical and mathematical reasoning. The objective of this course is to aid students in developing a dual thought process for both the physical and mathematical understanding of problems involving the motion of bodies under the influence of forces. Topics covered include kinematics and dynamics particles; Newton’s Law of Gravitation; principle of work and energy; conservation laws of mechanics; kinematics and dynamics of rigid bodies, including equations of motion, principle of work and energy, impulse, and momentum; and mechanical vibration.
