Description: Mechanics is the branch of the physical sciences that deals with the response of bodies to the action of forces and is based on the implementation of Newton’s laws. This class is divided into two sections: study of rigid bodies in equilibrium; and strength of materials. Fundamental concepts such as equilibrium, stress and strain, deformations and displacements, elasticity and inelasticity, strain energy, and load-carrying capacity will be covered.
