Description
Instruction in the fundamental principles of the mechanics of rigid bodies. Emphasis is on forces in a plane, forces in space, statics of rigid bodies, rigid bodies in three dimensions, centroids, friction and moments of inertia. Prerequisite: OCSUP 107, MATH 142, or instructor permission. Student may not earn credit for both ENT 221 and ENGR& 214. Formerly CET 220

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