-Completion of ENGR 271
-Placement at college level English OR
-Concurrent enrollment in ENGL 099/101
-Placement at college level reading

Mechanics is the study of the effects that forces produce on bodies. This is a course in dynamics, the branch of mechanics in which bodies experience accelerations due to unbalanced forces. Topics include particle kinematics (rectilinear and curvilinear); Newton’s laws; energy, work, and momentum methods; planar dynamics and rigid bodies; rigid body kinematics; impulse and momentum; and vibrations. 3 credit hours
IAI Major Code - EGR 943

Transferrable Elective Course: This course generally should transfer to an Illinois Articulation Initiative college or university. Please consult with your advisor about transferability.
