(2-3 semester credits)
Topics include particle statics, general principles and force vectors, rigid body equilibrium, moments of inertia, distributed forces and centroids, analysis of structures, virtual work, and friction. Prerequisite: Calculus I, Co-requisite: PHY I.
Demonstrate ability to solve two and three-dimensional force systems by vector and scalar methods. Learn to apply principles of forces to problems involving structures and friction.
Learning Outcomes (borrowed from Ohio Transfer Assurance Guide)
1. Break force vectors into component and combine forces into a resultant.
2. Compute moments and couples.
3. Evaluate systems in force and moment static equilibrium.
4. Determine forces on members in a truss, frame, and pulley.
5. Apply friction laws to direction, wedges, belt, disk, incline.
6. Determine the centroid of areas.
7. Determine moments of inertia.
8. Analyze forces, unit vectors, components in 3-D
9. Determine forces and moments by virtual work.
