## Overview

This unit of study aims to give students an understanding of principles of engineering dynamics including particle dynamics and rigid body dynamics (kinematics and kinetics) in two and three-dimensional space, as well as to develop problem solving and fundamental experimental skills. It covers the following topics. Introduction to dynamics, Kinematics of particles - rectilinear and plane curvilinear motion co-ordinates systems, 3-D curvilinear motion and relative motion. Plane kinematics of rigid bodies - rectilinear and plane curvilinear motion, relative velocity, instantaneous centre of zero velocity, relative acceleration, space curvilinear motion. Kinetics of particles - Newton's law, work and energy, impulse and momentum. Plane kinetics of rigid bodies - moments and products of inertia, Newton's law, work and energy, impulse and momentum. Three-dimensional dynamics of rigid bodies - kinematics, kinetics, gyroscopic motion.

### Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Apply fundamental knowledge to solve problems related to particle dynamics and rigid body dynamics in two and three-dimensional space;
2. Solve a wide range of problems using kinematics of particles, plane kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of particles, plane kinetics of rigid bodies and three-dimensional kinematics and kinetics of rigid bodies;
3. Communicate effectively and work as effective members of a team; and
4. Apply experimental techniques to real world engineering problems.
