ME 206 - Engineering Dynamics

4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This is the study of motion and the forces which affect the motion. This course includes the study of rectilinear motion, curvilinear motion, plane motion, dynamic force analysis, work and energy, and impulse and momentum. (prereq: ME 205 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Determine the position, velocity, and acceleration of particles subjected to rectilinear translation
  • Determine the trajectory of projectiles given initial conditions
  • Determine the position, velocity and acceleration of given points of a properly constrained kinematic linkage
  • Determine the acceleration or force causing acceleration using Newton’s Second Law of Motion
  • Determine the motion of kinetic systems using the principle of work and energy
  • Determine the motion of particles using the principle of impulse and momentum
  • Determine the forces acting on rigid bodies in motion
