Material for 2nd Year Engineering Mechanics Students

Problem Sheets

One set of problems was handed out in class the end of the statics and equilibrium section of the course

A second set of recommended problems, related to the 2D Rigid Body Dynamics was handed out in the third term. This includes the following problems from Merriam and Kraige, Dynamics (6th Ed.): 6/17, 6/20, 6/26, 6/27, 6/55, 6/56, 6/60, 6/63, 6/102, 6/106, 6/117, 6/128, 6/140, 6/182, 6/183, 6/187, 6/203.

References and Reading

Force Systems and Equilibrium (Lectures A, B, C)

Plane Kinetics of Rigid Bodies (Lectures D, E, F, G, H)


Earlier editions of these texts are useful too, though the numbering of the questions changes which might cause some confusion. If you wish to purchase on of the books, it is recommended you buy the Dynamics book (Volume 2), since it covers most of the 2nd year dynamics course and a share of 3rd year also. Volume 1 is a useful reference, but overall is less important.
