# ENGR 102 - Statics

Number of Credits: 3
Statics studies the equilibrium of stationary bodies under the influence of various kinds of forces. Topics studied include: forces, moments, couples, equilibrium, frames and machines, centroids, moment of inertia, and friction. Vector and scalar methods are used to solve problems. (Fall Term Only) Three hours lecture each week. Three Credits. Three billable hours.

Pre-requisite(s): PHYS 111  and MATH 135 , with minimum grades of C or better.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Express vectors in terms of their rectangular coordinates. (PG-1) (GE-3)
2. Compute the resultant of forces acting on an object. (PG-1) (GE-3)
3. Sketch the free-body diagram of a particle in equilibrium and solve for unknown forces acting on it. (PG-1, 2) (GE-2, 3)
4. Determine the moment of a force and use the principle of Moments to determine the net result of a number of forces acting on a single point. (PG-1) (GE-3)
5. Calculate the magnitude and direction of a moment of a couple. (PG-1, 2) (GE-3)
6. Replace a system of forces and couples with a single force and a couple. (PG-1, 2) (GE-2, 3)
7. Compute the magnitude of the resultant of a distributed loading. (PG-1, 2) (GE-3)
8. Sketch the free-body diagram of a rigid body in equilibrium and solve for unknown forces acting on it. (PG-1, 2) (GE-2, 3)
9. Determine the forces in members of simple trusses, frames and machines. (PG-1, 2) (GE-3)
10. Locate the centroid of areas and volume. (PG-1) (GE-3)
11. Compute surface areas of revolution and volumes of revolution. (PG-1) (GE-3)
12. Compute moments of inertia for areas. (PG-1, 2) (GE-3)
