**Course Outcomes and Linkage to Course Objectives**

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Construct free body diagrams.

2. Calculate reaction forces and moments for practical structures in static equilibrium such as

trusses, frames, and simple machines.

3. Construct and solve equations relating the applied forces to the resulting motion of a body

modeled as a particle, including projectiles, vehicles, pulley elements, and vibrations of a

mass-spring-damper system, etc.

4. Solve practical dynamics problems using impulse-momentum and work-energy concepts

including collisions, vehicle motion, and spring-mass systems.
