MECHANICS - DYNAMICS | FMEA25 |

**Aim**

- give knowledge about the basic concepts in mechanics for material systems in motion
- give knowledge and skills in engineering modeling
- develop ability to solve problems

*Knowledge and understanding*

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to explain and apply fundamental concepts as linear and angular momentum, linear and angular impulse, moment of inertia, energy and work for a rigid body.
- be able to use the balance equations for particles and rigid bodies in plane motion
- be able to describe velocities and accelerations in Cartesian, polar and natural coordinate systems

*Skills and abilities*

For a passing grade the student must

- starting with a real situation be able to delimit a problem and treat material bodies such as particles and rigid bodies
- be able to apply systematical methods to mechanical systems in motion
- be able to present written solutions to dynamical problems with suitable drawing of free body diagrams
- be able to delimit a problem from a given project specification and create a simulation model for solving the problem

*Judgement and approach*

For a passing grade the student must

- evaluate the physical consistency of the obtained results
