COURSE SYLLABUS

1. Course Code: MEC30

2. Course Title: STATICS OF RIGID BODIES

3. Pre-requisite: PHY11/11L

4. Co-requisite: NONE

5. Credit/Class schedule: 3 Meetings per week @ 1.5 hours per meeting; 4.5 hrs per week

6. Course Description:

The course covers the branch of engineering mechanics known as statics which deals with the forces acting on
non-moving bodies. The course is in preparation for a higher level of analysis of assemblies and structures. It covers
concurrent and non-concurrent forces, operation with the free body concept, equilibrium of coplanar and non-coplanar
force system, analysis of trusses, friction force in space, centroids and moments of inertia.
