Chihaka, T. (Tendayi) (2010)
This module is a first degree course in Mechanics. The module starts with a treatment of vectors and vectors calculus and attempts to explain all the topics in mechanics from this basis. It is hoped that the students enrolling for this course will acquaint themselves with the basic notions of force and the resultant motion of its application. Four areas of mechanics: Statics, Dynamics, Kinetics and Kinematics of particles and rigid bodies have been treated in this module. The student is strongly advised to consult Physics sources on Mechanics in conjunction with this module for practical examples which are mathematically modelled in the module.
