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 2D and 3D rigid body vectors.
Complete computations using twoforce and threeforce members.
Complete computations using coplanar and concurrent vectors.
Solve problems involving friction.
Calculate centers of gravity.
