This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. We will study the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in rigid planar (2D) motion. This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ENGINEERING SYSTEMS IN MOTION: DYNAMICS OF PARTICLES AND BODIES IN 2D MOTION
Very very good course. Superb explanation. Nice teaching. Very neatly explained. Good use of ICT Tools. Thank you very much Professor.
Amazing contents and excellent delivery. Absolutely loved the course..
I would just like to say that Prof. Whiteman is a great explainer. I would like to complete most of the courses by him that are available on Coursera.
A good thorough course for engineers. The videos and practice problems were very helpful in practicing and understanding the material.
