Intended learning outcomes

To develop the ability to use, estimate and create models of physical systems related to classical mechanics. After successful examination the student should be able to model and analytically or numerically solve basic mechanics problems using motion equations, force laws, and derived momentum equations and energy principles. Furthermore, the student should individually and in group be able to apply;

  • experimental problem solving to handle problems related to mechanics.

Course content

  • Particle mechanics:
    Kinematics; position, time, velocity, acceleration, angular position, angular velocity, angular acceleration, equations of motion, relative motion. Kinetics; mass, force, torque, Newton’s laws of motion. Work, kinetic energy, power, conservative forces, potential energy, and energy conservation.
  • Mechanics of particle systems and Statics:
    Centre of mass, momentum, conservation of momentum, angular momentum, conservation of angular momentum, inertia. Statics; equilibrium, static equilibrium, and centre of gravity.
  • Oscillations and waves in a mechanical system:
    Amplitude, frequency, wavelength, period time, and angular frequency. Wave velocity superposition, interference, standing waves.
  • Physics modeling:
    The components of modeling. Experimental problem solving.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
