This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. We will study the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in rigid planar (2D) motion. This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.

### TOP REVIEWS FROM ENGINEERING SYSTEMS IN MOTION: DYNAMICS OF PARTICLES AND BODIES IN 2D MOTION

Amazing contents and excellent delivery. Absolutely loved the course..

Very very good course. Superb explanation. Nice teaching. Very neatly explained. Good use of ICT Tools. Thank you very much Professor.

Best course videos for a fast recap of my engineering mechanics.

A brilliant course, gave me a great foundation for more advanced courses in mechanical engineering. When ever i use some of the things i learned in this course in my work i think of Whiteman.
