PHY 221. Mechanics. 3 Hours.

Classical Newtonian analytical mechanics. Newton's laws are used together with vector analysis to analyze problems in statics and dynamics, with emphasis upon the latter. Problem-solving situations include rectilinear particle dynamics (especially oscillators), general particle dynamics, non-inertial reference frames, central forces, systems of particles, and mechanics of rigid bodies.

Prerequisite: MATH 212 with a minimum grade of D and PHY 142 with a minimum grade of D.
