EGR-121 - Mechanics 1

3 credits

This is the first mechanics course for engineering majors. It is a vector approach to the solution of equilibrium problems for particles, rigid bodies, and multi-membered structures (frames, machines, and trusses). In order to broaden the scope of problems available for analysis, the student is introduced to the study of friction forces and centroids. Also, for preparation for future mechanics courses, the topics of moment of inertia and shear and bending moments are introduced.

Prerequisite(s): MAT-131 and PHY-231;

Previously known as: ENGR-310
