##### Course Description

This course is designed to teach the student kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies including methods of motion relative to translating and rotating reference frames, force and acceleration, work and energy, impulse and momentum and vibrations. This course is designed as an engineering transfer course. Transferability of this course into the desired engineering program should be confirmed with the transfer office.
