Liberal Arts EducationAs pre-specialized education, which is organically linked to specialized education, Foundation Courses are aimed at providing students with the basic knowledge necessary to understand specialized studies in their chosen areas, and thereby providing them w Expected Outcome To understand, acquire, and be able to explain the logical structure and system of the basic disciplines in accordance with each subject and the knowledge and skills necessary for further academic development. Class Objectives

/Class OutlineMechanics is one of the mainstays of physics and engineering as well as electromagnetics, and hence an important subject for students in the department of science and engineering as a foundation to be acquired.

Our goal in General Mechanics is to systematically provide the principles and laws of mechanics for engineering students. Students coming out of this class should have a deep conceptual understanding of classical Newtonian mechanics. This course, General Mechanics I, provides instruction in one-particle dynamics and mathematics required for the understanding of this lecture.

Class Schedule lesson 1: Basis of the vector and the operations such as scalar product, vector product and the calculus

lesson 2: Various coordinate systems such as Cartesian coordinate, polar coordinate and cylindrical coordinate system

lesson 3: Position, velocity, and acceleration vector and the relationships in terms of temporal differential: Newton’s first law of motion (the law of inertia) and inertial frames of reference.

lesson 4: Newton’s second law (Newton’s equation of motion) and third law of motion (law of action and reaction): Methods for solving the differential equations of linear motion with constant acceleration and free-fall motion

lesson 5: Methods for solving the constrained motion

lesson 6: The equation of simple harmonic motion and the solving method: Complex number and Euler’s formula

lesson 7: The methods for solving second order linear ordinary differential equations with constant factors

lesson 8: The equation of dumped oscillations and the solving methods: the features of dumped oscillations

lesson 9: The equation of forced oscillations and the solving methods: the features of forced oscillations

lesson 10: Momentum and Impulse

lesson 11: Angular momentum and moment of force

lesson 12: Integral representations for the work done by forces: The relationship between work and kinetic energy through the equation of motion

lesson13: Conservative forces and potential energy

lesson14: Conservation of mechanical energy and the problems for application

lesson15: Universal gravitation and the potential energy
