Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET)

MET 206 Dynamics (3) Kinematics (particles and rigid bodies), kinetics, work-energy, impulse- momentum, and mechanisms.

MET 206 Dynamics (3)

Instructional, Educational, and Course Objectives – To introduce students to the basic principles of dynamics as applied to practical problems which include such topics as friction, kinetics of particles and rigid bodies, laws of force and motion, using methods of work-energy and impulse-momentum. Further, students will consider mechanisms which are typical in manufacturing industries and mechanical design. These goals serve to satisfy the following course objectives:

• Students should be able to demonstrate proficiency in applied design, manufacturing processes, and mechanics.
• Students should be able to apply concepts of applied mathematics and science in solving technical problems.
