Mechanics is a branch of
physical science and the
practical application of mechanics.
Applied mechanics examines the response of bodies (solids and fluids) or
systems of bodies to external forces. The subject **Engineering
Mechanics** provides wide exposure to the basic concepts of physics along
with the static and dynamic implementations of these concepts into everyday
life.

Concepts will be applied in this
course from previous courses you have taken in basic mathematics and
physics. The course is 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.

and method of section, cables subjected to point loads. Multi force member-
plane frames.

Friction-law's of friction, application of friction on inclined
plane. Wedges and ladders friction, application to flat belt.

**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.

**Dynamics includes:**

**Kinematics**

Basic concepts, equation of motion for constant
acceleration and motion under gravity. Variable acceleration and
motion curves. Relative motion and dependent motion.
Equation of motion in Cartesian co-ordinate. Path and polar coordinates. Motion of
projectiles.

**Kinetics**

Newton's Second Law of motion and its application. Newton's Second
Law of motion in Cartesian and path co-ordinates of curvilinear motion of particles.

**Work Energy and
Impulse**

Work, power, energy, conservative and
non-conservative forces. Conservation of energy and work energy principle for motion of
particle. Impulse, momentum, direct central impact and
coefficient of restitution. Conservation of momentum and
impulse momentum principle of particles.

You should have
a background in basic mathematics, trigonometry, and physics covering classical
mechanics.

Any X+II level
textbook covering Physics-I and Trignometry

The course text is online at http://www.ezed.in and provides
additional exercises and problems. Every lecture contains links to the relevant
sections in the text. Be sure to read them!

**Course Format**

The class will consist of video lectures, which are between 8
and 12 minutes in length. These contain 3-4 integrated quiz questions per
video. Also at the end of each video the student will get a chance to test his
understanding of the concepts through different Quizzes.
