Students coming out of this class should have a deep conceptual understanding of classical Newtonian mechanics. This course, General Mechanics II, provides instruction in dynamics of multiparticle system and rigid body on the basis of the dynamics of one-particle provided in General Mechanics I. lesson1:Two-body problem; reduced mass and relative motion of two particleslesson2:Motion of planets governed by Kepler’s lawlesson3: Collision phenomena and conservation law of linear momentumlesson4:Continuum model and the integral representation of the center of mass.Motion of center of mass of multiparticle system; relationship between force and temporal differentiation of total momentum.lesson5: Total angular momentum of mass system and its time derivative, moment of force, kinetic energylesson6: Motion of rigid body and degree of freedomlesson7: :Rotation of rigid body with a fixed axis and the moment of inertialesson8:The examples of moment of inertia for some typical rigid bodieslesson9:  Rigid body pendulumlesson10: Planar motion and kinetic energy of rigid bodieslesson11: Precession of spinning toplesson12: Static equilibrium of rigid bodylesson13:Translational relative motion and fictitious forceslesson14: Rotational relative motion and fictitious forceslesson15: Coriolis force and centrifugal forceterm-end exam Each teacher specifies the textbooks and other books for reference. Handouts will be provided. Projections, PowerPoint or movie, will be also used. Read the textbook and/or handouts very carefully before the class and solve exercises in the textbook after the class. Students are expected to have taken the class of “General Physics I”.The actual class schedule might vary flexibly depending on the students and the situation. So please ask the actual schedule to each teacher of the class. About 70% by the term-end exam and about 30% by the attitude toward the class. Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
