Mechanical engineering systems have moving parts that impact on each other. The interconnection of components and the existence of fluctuating forces cause vibrations that must be damped out. The relationships between motions, forces, moments and energy are all expressible as mathematical equations that can be developed from first principles. In this course, you will learn how to employ differential equations, vectors, operators, matrices and tensors to represent the motions in mechanical systems. These skills are built up as understandable solutions to practical engineering problems.
