PHY-170 Engineering Mechanics 1: Statics and Dynamics

3 hours lecture, 1.5 hours tutorial, 3 credits

This course is an introduction to engineering mechanics for students planning to transfer into engineering at UBC. Students will study the statics, kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies. They will apply vector analysis to three-dimensional static-equilibrium problems, and differential and integral calculus to dynamics problems, as well as make use of Newton's laws and the concepts of impulse, momentum, work and energy. Students will focus on the analysis of practical mechanics problems in two and three dimensions.
