Official course description (approximately accurate):
ENGRD 203(2030) Dynamics (also T&AM 203)
Fall, spring. 3 credits. Prerequisite: ENGRD/T&AM 202, co-registration in MATH 293, or permission of instructor. All students must take a lab and a section.
Newtonian dynamics of a particle, systems of particles, a rigid body. Kinematics, motion relative to a moving frame. Impulse, momentum, angular momentum, energy. Rigid-body kinematics, angular velocity, moment of momentum, the inertia tensor. Euler equations, the gyroscope. Laboratory experiments demonstrate basic principles of dynamics.
