CATALOG DESCRIPTION Kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies in plane motion. Work-energy and impulse-momentum principles.
TOPICS COVERED • Kinematics of a particle: rectilinear and curvilinear kinematics • Kinetics of a particle: force and acceleration • Kinetics of a particle: work and energy • Kinetics of a particle: impulse and momentum • Planar kinematics of a rigid body: rotation about a fixed axis • Planar kinematics of a rigid body: mass moment of inertia
Additional material may be covered as time permits.
Given a relevant problem, students will calculate the rectilinear motion of a particle. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate the curvilinear motion of a particle. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate the particle equations of motion. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate power and efficiency relationships for particles. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate impulse and momentum relationships for particles. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate rigid body planar motion. Given a relevant problem, students will calculate rigid body translation and angular motion about a fixed axis.
COURSE PRE-REQUISITES MENG 2113
REQUIRED TEXTBOOK Hibbeler, R. C. Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 12th Edition, Pearson/Prentice-Hall.
COURSE ORGANIZATION AND ASSESSMENT • Course Format This course consists of two 75 minute lecture sessions per week. Class time will be used to review theory and to solve relevant problems. However, all material cannot be communicated during the lecture and problem sessions. Outside of class, Students are expected to review theory ahead of the problem sessions, and to practice problems after the lectures and problem sessions. Student participation in class discussions and class problems is highly encouraged. There will be weekly quizzes and weekly homework assigned.
• Evaluation Method Your performance will be tested regularly throughout the semester by in-class exams, quizzes, and homework assignments. There will be weekly quizzes and 2 exams: a mid-term and a final. Homework problems will be assigned weekly, graded when turned in, and points determined.
• Course Grade The final grade for the course will be based on total number of points accumulated. Possible points in each category: Homework 2000 points, Quizzes 500 points Midterm 1000 points, Final exam 2000 points, Attendance/Attitude/Participation 500 points. The overall score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X = [Homework points + Quiz points + Exam points + [Attendance,Attitude,Participation points] /6000 possible points x 100%
The final letter grade for the course is based on the value of X and is determined from the table below. Note that a final percentage of 90 and above guarantees an A, 80 and above guarantees a B, etc.
Value of X (%) 90 - 100 80 - 89 70 - 79 60 - 69 < 60 Letter Grade A B C D F
Engineering Standard formats.
• Late Assignments Homework assignments must be turned in on the due date at the beginning of class for full points. Late assignments will be accepted up until the solutions are posted, but at a reduction of 1 point per problem per day. After solutions are posted, no points will be awarded for turned in homework.
• Class Attendance You are expected to attend class regularly and will be awarded points for being in class. In the event that you do not attend class, you are still responsible for notes, homework assignments, quizzes, exams and anything else missed while absent.
• Student Attitude Once class starts, the use of cell phones, reading of newspapers, conducting private discussions, using the computer (unless requested by the instructor), working on anything that is not directly related to the course, and making derogatory remarks about your classmates or instructor will not be accepted and may result in your dismissal from the class. Late arrival and sleeping in class will also negatively affect this score.
• Quiz and Exam Make-up You are expected to take all quizzes and exams on the scheduled date and time. However, if for some acceptable reason you are not able to do so, then you must inform the instructor in advance. The instructor will then decide whether you will be allowed to take a make-up quiz or exam, depending on the validity of your excuse.
• Exam Content Although most of the exam problems are based on the material covered and have the same degree of difficulty as those assigned for homework or solved in class, some problems may involve concepts not necessarily covered in class but within the course material.
Extra credit
Students are expected to perform adequately in all aspects of the course. However, the overall objective is for each student to learn and to apply the course material. In the event that substandard performance occurs, quizzes are missed, or the student believes that additional help is needed, the student may request extra credit assignments.
GENERAL GUIDELINES
• Plan on spending at least 6 hours outside of class each week to study the material and to work on homework assignments and projects. Do not wait until the last day to start the homework, do projects, or to prepare for exams.
• Read the course material before coming to class. There will be a quiz every Tuesday on the material.
• If you need makeup or extra credit work, see the instructor.
• Request office hours throughout the semester as needed for questions or problems.
