Basic understanding of Physics and Mathematics
The branch of Applied science that deals with state of rest or the state of motion is termed as Mechanics. Starting from the analysis of rigid bodies under gravitational force and simple applied forces the mechanics has grown to the analysis of robotics, aircrafts, spacecrafts under dynamic force, atmospheric forces, temperatures forces etc. The principal of mechanics developed around state of rest and state of motion of the bodies by Sir Issac Newton which is termed as three laws of motion and the laws of gravitation. The mechanics based on these laws is called classical mechanics or Newtonian mechanics. Engineers are keen to use laws of mechanics to actual field problems. Application of laws of mechanics to field problems is termed as engineering mechanics. Here the students will learn the laws and principals of mechanics along with their applications to engineering problems. As a matter of fact knowledge of mechanics of solids is very essential for an engineer in planning, designing and construction of various types of structures and machines, so that the design is safe and economical.
