Office Hours

 

 

Official office hours are in green.  However, my door is open pretty much whenever I’m in the office.  If the door is open, you’re welcome to stop by.  If, for some reason, I’m too busy to talk with you, we’ll make an appointment.

 

Homework:

You will learn much more if you do the homework.  All homework sets should be put in the class drop box in Knoy Hall by the end of the day on which they are due.  Every homework problem is worth 10 points.  Feel free to work with one another on homework as long as everyone is participating and learning.  Everyone must hand in their own work. 

 

Homework sets handed in up to one week late will be penalized 50%.  Homework will not be accepted more than one week late without prior arrangement.

 

For all homework problems:

 

 

 

Grading:

Exam 1                      15%

Exam 2                      20%

Exam 3                      20%

Homework                 15%

Catapult Project       15%

Lab Assignments     15%

 

 

Extra Credit: 

I want students to start noticing dynamics in the world outside of class.  To foster this, each student may bring in an example that demonstrates some principle from class.  You will be asked to give a 5-10 min explanation to the class.  If your example and explanation are correct and relevant, two points will be added to your final class average.  Each student may do two demonstrations during the semester.

Course Objectives:

 

Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

 

1.   Distinguish between problems requiring a Statics solution and problems requiring a Dynamics solution (i.e., Bodies that require a Statics solution have no acceleration.)

 

2.   Identify the different types of dynamics problem (i.e., Kinematics, Kinetics, Rigid Body, Particle).

 

3.   Select the appropriate solution method for the different problem types (i.e., Kinematics, Equation of Motion, Work/Energy Principles, Conservation of Energy, Impulse/Momentum, and Conservation of Momentum).

 

4.   Properly apply each of the solution methods.

 

5.   Properly construct motion diagrams for the solution of Kinematics problems.

 

6.   Properly draw supporting diagrams for Kinetics problems (i.e., Free Body Diagram, Kinetic Diagram, Impulse/Momentum Diagram, etc.).

 

7.   Properly calculate the mass moment of inertia for basic and composite shapes.

 

8.   Select the appropriate coordinate system type (i.e., x-y or n-t) and location for the various problem types.
