MET 208 - Technical Mechanics, Dynamics
Students will study classical vector mechanics dealing with the laws of motion. The course covers kinematics, the study of motion without reference to cause, and kinetics, the study of motion as a result of applied forces and moments. Three class hours.
Prerequisite: MET 203 with a grade of C or better.
Course Learning Outcomes
1. Create solution paths to complex engineering problems using actual applications of bodies or mechanisms in motion.
2. Analyze the kinematics of bodies in an environment of constant acceleration, such as gravity.
3. Describe the principles of particles or rigid bodies in mechanical systems of motion.
Course Offered Fall and Spring
