EGM 3400 Engineering Mechanics-Dynamics Time and location shown on website 1. Catalog Description: Credits: 2; Dynamics of particles and rigid bodies for rectilinear translation, curvilinear motion, rotation and plane motion. Principles of work and energy, impulse and momentum. 2. Pre-requisites and Co-requisites: Prerequisites: EGM 2511 (or EGM 2500) and MAC 2313. 3. Course Objectives: This course aims at providing basic coverage of particle and rigid body dynamics to undergraduate engineering students. The material covered is a foundation for many other courses and is used frequently by most engineers. Students are expected to learn the application of work/energy and of impulse/momentum principles to dynamical systems under both planar and three-dimensional conditions. 4. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component: This course contributes by enhancing the student’s abilities to work professionally in rigid body dynamical systems. Its content is 100% engineering science. 5. Relationship of course to program outcomes: ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) is the sole accrediting agency for engineering and technology programs in the United States. This course will achieve the following ABET outcomes by enhancing the student’s abilities in the following areas: (1) Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering [outcome (a), high coverage, 50% of the course grade, assessed through exams and homework assignments]; (2) Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems [outcome (e), high coverage, 50% of the course grade, assessed through exams and homework assignments]; (3) Understand professional and ethical responsibilities [outcome (f), low coverage, no formal assessment]; and (4) Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context [outcome (h), low coverage, no formal assessment]. In addition, the course will also achieve the following program specific outcomes: (M1) Possess knowledge of chemistry and calculus-based physics with depth in at
