Lecture Hours:50


Description
Fundamental principles of the mechanics of rigid bodies will be explored. Topics include forces in a plane, forces in space, statics of rigid bodies, rigid bodies in three dimensions, centroids, friction and Moments of Inertia. Prerequisite: OCSUP 108, MATH 142 or 151 or instructor permission. Student may not earn credit for both CET 220 and ENGR& 214.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Understanding of rigid body vectors.
  • Understanding of 2-D and 3-D vectors.
  • Understanding of two-force and three-force members.
  • Knowledge of coplanar and concurrent vectors.
  • Solve problems involving friction.
  • Calculate centers of gravity.
  • Solve truss problems.
  • Determine reactions and moments.
