The course offers exercises related to the contents of Fundamentals of Mechanics 1 and 2. Students solve given problems and present their answers. This will allow them to understand mechanics and prepare them to solve more general problems in physics.
By completing this course, students will be able to:
1) Find mathematical solutions to problems in mechanics expressed by equations and explain the physical meanings of the solutions.
2) Acquire methods and approaches to solve more general problems in physics.
particles, system of particles, rigid bodies, Newton's laws of motion, conservation of momentum, conservation of energy, conservation of angular momentum, moment of inertia, inertial force
|✔ Specialist skills
