ENGR2505 Dynamics

Course Description

This course will cover advanced dynamics and physics concepts through the use of calculus and other math skills. It will introduce key concepts of kinematics and kinetics of particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies. It will also introduce the key concepts of work, energy, linear and angular impulse momentum, motion, and vibrations.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Examine various theoretical and practical concepts of dynamics used by engineers, physicists, and other scientific professionals.
  • Evaluate kinematic calculations for particles and rigid bodies in 3D, in inertial and non-inertial reference frames.
  • Solve kinematic calculations for particles and rigid bodies in 2D.
  • Identify the fundamental differences between 2D and 3D kinetics.
  • Analyze plane motion and curvilinear motion equations.
  • Compare work and energy.
  • Describe translation and rotation.
  • Perform mechanical vibration calculations.
  • Communicate how dynamics theory draws conclusions about everyday real-world concepts.
