PHYS-251 Intermediate Mechanics
Fall for 2017-2018
The focus of this course is on the review of Newtonian mechanics, development of the Lagrange formulation of classical mechanics, and applications to one- and two-dimensional motion, central forces, collisions, and oscillations. Accelerated coordinate systems, geometrical phases, and rigid-body rotations will also be covered. Throughout the course, there will be emphasis on developing problem-solving techniques and applications to the real world.
