Prerequisite: Set 1: 5620221
The course set above should be completed before taking CE222 ENGINEERING MECHANICS II.

Course Objective

The course provides engineering students firm foundations in the study of motion, forces that cause motion and their relationships for rigid bodies using Newton's Laws, energy and momentum principles and introduces systems governed by ordinary differential equations.

Course Content

Kinematics of particles and rigid bodies: absolute motion, relative motion. Kinetics of particles: equations of motion, work-energy and impulse-momentum. Systems of particles. Kinetics of rigid bodies: Euler`s equation, plane motion of rigid bodies, kinetic energy of rigid bodies. Introduction to the dynamics of vibrating systems.

Learning Outcomes

The students fullfilling the course requirements satisfactorily are expected to -Determine the kinematic relationship for two dimensional (2-D)motion of system of particles and rigid bodies. -Apply Newton's equations to 2-D problems to determine forces resulting from a specified motion. -Analyze 2-D motion of particles and rigid bodies using energy and momentum principles. -To study and discuss one-degree-of-freedom undamped free and forced vibrations of rigid bodies using Newton's equations of motion and energy methods.
