The unit will commence with a calculus treatment of kinematics of motion in one, two and three dimensions, including parabolic motion. The application of Newton's laws to a wide variety of phenomena will be investigated and the concepts of work, energy and the conservation laws discussed. Rotational kinematics and dynamics will be introduced, including the concepts of moment of inertia, torque, moment of a force, angular momentum. Other topics to be covered are vectors, statics, centre of mass, centroids and systems of particles, collisions, oscillations, waves, fluid mechanics and dynamics.
Examination 60%, laboratory work 20%, two problem-based assignments (10% each) 20%
