Engineering Mechanics is an essential analytical subject which
focuses on forces and their effects on the bodies. It applies the laws of
Newtonian physics to determine the parameters as required. This subject is
essential in bridging the gap between physical theory and its application
to technology.

**About the course**

The concepts applied in this course are from
previous courses taken up in basic mathematics and physics. The course is
mainly divided into two parts, **Statics** and **Dynamics**.

**Statics**
involves the visualizations and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an
emphasis on real world engineering applications and problem solving.

**Dynamics**, on
the other hand, deals with bodies in motion and the resulting effects of application
of forces with an emphasis on real world engineering applications.

It also
covers wide range of Problem Sets, Multiple Choice Questions, University
Questions, etc which help students to gear up for the Exams.
