Mechanics I

Ratiarison, A. (Adolphe)



This module of Mechanics 1 addresses aspects experienced in daily life and in our environment including: * Physical quantities and vector operators * Kinematics of a material point in one dimension and two dimensions: o Research of parametric equations and trajectories of a moving object o Calculation of velocity and acceleration vectors in different coordinate systems o The composition law of velocities and accelerations * Static solids (forces acting on a system) * The dynamics of material points using Newton’s laws * The concepts of Work, Energy, Power, Mechanical theorem of kinetic energy and the conservation of mechanical energy
