AEP 3330 - Mechanics of Particles and Solid Bodies


     
Fall, summer (not offered every summer). 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: PHYS 1112  or PHYS 1116 . Corequisite: AEP 4210  or equivalent or permission of instructor.

L. Wickham.

Covers Newton’s mechanics; constants of the motion; many-body systems; linear oscillations; variational calculus; Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism for generalized coordinates; non-inertial reference systems; central-force motion; motion of rigid bodies; small vibrations in multi-mass systems; nonlinear oscillations; and basic introduction to relativistic mechanics. Emphasis is on mathematical treatments, physical concepts, and applications. (At the level of Classical Dynamics by Marion and Thornton.)
