MET 405 - Dynamics

Course Description: MET 405: Dynamics: In this course the motion of a particle and its associated forces and accelerations will be analyzed. The analytic techniques covered will include conservation of energy, impulse momentum and work methods. D'Alembert's principle for the motion of rigid bodies will be studied, plus rotational dynamics, and critical shaft speeds. Prerequisite: Departmental mathematics requirements. (3,0) 3 credits.
