Applied Mechanics is a branch of physical science and the practical application of mechanics. Applied mechanics examines
the response of bodies (solids and fluids) or systems of bodies to external forces. The subject **Engineering
Mechanics** provides wide exposure to the basic concepts of physics along
with the static and dynamic implementations of these concepts into everyday
life.

Concepts
will be applied in this course from previous courses you have taken in basic mathematics
and physics. The course is divided into two parts, **Statics** and **Dynamics**.

Statics
involves the visualizations and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an
emphasis on real world engineering applications and problem solving.

**Dynamics**, on the other
hand, deals with bodies in motion and the resulting effects of application of
forces with an emphasis on real world engineering applications.

It also covers wide range of Problem Sets, Multiple Choice
Questions, University Questions, etc which help students to gear up for the
Exams.

(No numerical on work and
energy and impulse momentum principle).

You should have
a background in basic mathematics, trigonometry, and physics covering classical
mechanics.

**Suggested Readings**

Any X+II level
textbook covering Physics-I and Trignometry. The course text is online at http://www.ezed.in and provides
additional exercises and problems. Every lecture contains links to the relevant
sections in the text. Be sure to read them!

**Course Format**

The class will consist of video lectures, which are between 8
and 12 minutes in length. These contain 3-4 integrated quiz questions per
video. Also at the end of each video the student will get a chance to test his
understanding of the concepts through different Quizzes.
