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

Makeup Work  Makeup for hour exams will be given only for valid University excused absences. Makeup quizzes will not be given. Instead, excused absence on quiz days will be treated as if no quiz were given. Any work missed due to an unexcused absence will receive a grade of Zero. If an hour exam is missed due to valid excuse you must contact me by email within 48 hours after the start time of the missed exam to make arrangements for makeup. For the purposes of this class, a University Excuse must be issued by Engineering Student Services in Shelby.

Accessibility  It is the policy of Auburn University to provide accessibility to it’s programs and activities, and reasonable accommodation for persons defined as having a disability under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students who have a documented disability and need special accommodations should make an appointment to see me as soon as possible.

Contingency  If normal class and/or lab activities are disrupted due to illness, emergency, or crisis situation (such as an H1N1 flu outbreak), the syllabus and other course plans and assignments may be modified to allow completion of the course. If this occurs, an addendum to your syllabus and/or course assignments will replace the original materials.
