Available for Non-Award Study: Yes
Pre-Requisite: CEME 1004 OR TECH 1006 AND MATHS 1011 or MATHS 1013. SACE Stage 2 Maths Studies, Specialist Maths, Physics or equivalent.

This course teaches students how to apply Newtonian physics to analyse relatively simple physical mechanisms. - with some emphasis on commonly encountered engineering applications. It follows on from the Statics course, but considers systems that are not in equilibrium i.e. with velocity and acceleration. Some of the topics covered are pure kinematics (a mathematical description of motion only), while others are kinetic (determine motion in problems involving the concepts of force and energy). The course is restricted to 2-D (planar) mechanisms.
