Engineering Mechanics: Statics
3 Units (AA/AS; CSU; UC)
54 lecture hours

Grade Mode: Standard Letter

Prerequisite(s): MATH 191 and PHYS 201.

Strongly recommended: ENGL 099 if required by English placement or if required by English level.

A vectorial treatment of the principles of statics with application to engineering problems. Composition and resolution of co-plannar force systems; equilibrium of rigid bodies; distributed forces in trusses; frames and cables; shear and bending moments in beams; moments of inertia of areas and bodies and graphical methods are used to model force systems and equilibrium conditions as applied to engineering statics problems.
