Course Description & Objectives: 

This course is a continuation of Classical Mechanics I. The course covers motion of a particle in moving and rotating axes and orbital motion using polar coordinates and introduces rigid body dynamics and analytic mechanics. 

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of the course, the student should be able to: 

  • Use polar coordinates  to find velocity, acceleration and angular momentum of a particle moving in an inertial frame
  • Use the reciprocal coordinate method to solve orbital motion equations
  • State, prove and apply Keplar’s laws (and other laws) of planetary motion
  • Formulate and solve rigid body problem for moments of inertia, angular momentum and kinetic energy
  • Solve problems using Langrage equations and Hamilton functions
