This introductory course has the same rigor as the regular M.I.T. course of the same name, which is one of the first subjects in M.I.T.'s Mechanical Engineering undergraduate curriculum.
In this course, students will learn to analyze and predict the dynamic behavior of objects and systems, their motions and associated forces, and understand mechanical systems of complexity that are representative of engineering practice. Students will also analyze the kinematics of mechanisms, understand torque and angular momentum in rigid bodies in rotation, and imbalance in rotating systems. Finally students will derive nonlinear equations of motion for a wide variety of mechanical systems, solve them using numerical methods in MATLAB as well as plot and interpret results.
The course combines a unique blend of rigor and realism to produce fundamental skills in an accessible, entertaining format.
