APSC1023Mechanics II5 ch (3C 3L* 1T)

Continuation of APSC 1013. The static analysis of structural systems including the analysis of internal forces and bending moments in beams. Centroids, moments of inertia and simple harmonic motion are introduced. Work, energy and momentum of particles and rigid bodies. Introduction to the rotation of a rigid body about a fixed axis, motion of a rigid body in a plane and energy, momentum and angular momentum of a rigid body in plane motion. Lab topics such as conservation laws and vibrations.
