Dynamics is the study of the accelerated motion of particles and rigid bodies. The study of the motion in this course will deal with kinematics (the mathematical description of the motion) and kinetics (the analysis of the forces causing the motion). Vector notation and operations will be used extensively in this course, and calculus will be used regularly. (Formerly EGR 212)
