On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Model mechanical systems as plane assemblies of masses and inertias, and draw clear accurate linked free-body diagrams.
- Identify kinematic relations between coupled elements using cables, gears and pure rolling.
- Calculate moments of inertias of a range of assemblies, using parallel axes and perpendicular axes theorems.
- Formulate energy expressions for systems and use concepts of work and power to determine motion.
- Understand the properties of one degree of freedom oscillatory systems.
