Course Description: The object of this course is to review and extend the fundamental principles and formulations of kinematics and kinetics for Newtonian mechanics in the context of problems involving the dynamics of particles and rigid bodies. Topics include: particle kinematics; curvilinear coordinate systems; particle kinetics; Newton's laws; work and energy; impulse, momentum and impact; rigid body dynamics; plane kinematics and plane kinetics. This course provides an understanding of dynamics. Assessment: class tests (30%); tutorial tests (10%); 3-hour final exam (60%).
