Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic knowledge of calculus and linear algebra, in particular integrals,
ordinary differential equations, and vector algebra.

Aim

The aim of the course is to give a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts and laws of classical mechanics and how to apply them to simple problems in statics and dynamics. The course should also prepare the student for further studies in subjects where basic knowledge of mechanics is required, e.g. solid mechanics, structural engineering, and hydraulics.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

· draw free-body diagrams for a material system in equilibrium, and to formulate and solve the governing equations of equilibrium · describe the meaning of Newton's laws, including the concept of inertial frames of reference · apply Newton's second law to solve simple problems for a particle in rectilinear as well as curvilinear motion · solve simple engineering problems, including determination of bearing reactions, for a rigid body rotating about a fixed axis · apply methods of work and energy to solve simple problems for particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies in motion

Content

Statics: force systems, equilibrium, centre of mass, friction. Dynamics of particles: Newton's laws, work, energy, linear and angular momentum, systems of particles. Dynamics of rigid bodies: plane motion, systems of bodies, central impact.

Organisation

The teaching will be based on lectures, problem solving sessions and consultations.
