ME 207 Engineering Mechanics II


3 cr.


ME 204 and MATH 236 or concurrently.

Course Description

This course expands the material in ME 204 specifically for mechanical engineering students. The content includes: the kinematics of particles and of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions. Problem approaches to kinetics beyond Newton's 2nd law (work and energy, impulse and momentum) are applied to particles, followed by the application of these methods (including angular impulse and momentum) to systems of particles and to rigid bodies. A project applying these advanced methods of analysis is required.
