About the Course
This course is an introduction to learning and applying the principles required to solve engineering mechanics problems. Concepts will be applied in this course from previous courses you have taken in basic math and physics. The course addresses the modelling and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an emphasis on real-world engineering applications and problem-solving.

Forces and Particle Equilibrium: In this section, students will learn the definition of a force and how to represent a force as a vector in two (2D) and three (3D) dimensions.
Define and Calculate Moments: In this section, students will learn the definition of a moment. Students will calculate the moment of a force about a point, line or axis, and moment due to a couple.
Equilibrium and Equivalence of Force Systems: In this section, students will learn the equilibrium equations in two (2D) and three (3D) dimensions.
Free Body Diagrams and Equilibrium Analysis Techniques: In this section, students will learn to analyze general equilibrium problems. Free Body Diagrams (FBD) will be defined. Concepts will be reinforced with example problems.
Application of Static Equilibrium Equations: In this section, students will apply the equilibrium equations to solve two (2D) and three (3D) real world engineering problems. There will be an extensive use of example problems to reinforce concepts from the course.
