Cross product and dot product (or finding component of a vector on another). (2) Newton’s laws. (3) Difference between mass and weight. (4) SI units and FPS units of standard quantities (like mass, weight, force etc). (5) Dimensions of standard quantities. (6) Force and its various classifications, principle of transmissibility. (7) Different ways of representing direction of a vector (force in our case), e.g., using θ x , θ y , θ z or azimuth angle and elevation angle or by specifying two points along the direction or specifying direction cosines. (8) Adding forces by resolving into components, finding magnitude and direction of the resultant force (in 2D and 3D) of concurrent system of forces. Don’t forget to mention the units after all quantities. (9) Rules for drawing free body diagrams for bodies treated as particles (Very important). Make sure that you follow all the rules. Show the co-ordinate system on each FBD....
