Description
This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures.  We will study the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in rigid planar (2D) motion.  This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion.  Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time.  Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.
