## PHYS H2004 - Dynamics 3

Module Title: Dynamics 3 English
 Credits: 5
 NFQ Level: 6
Module Delivered In 2 programme(s)
Module Aim: To provide the student with a specialized knowledge of the external effects of forces applied to particles and to rigid links, as evidenced by the change of motion produced.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
LO1 Analyze mathematically the relationship between the motion of a particle and the forces to which it is subjected by the methods of Force-Mass-Acceleration/Energy
LO2 Analyze mathematically the relationship between the motion of a particle and the forces to which it is subjected by the method of Impulse/Momentum.
LO3 Analyze mathematically the relationship between the motion of a rigid body and the forces to which it is subjected by the methods of Force-Mass-Acceleration
LO4 Analyze mathematically the applications of friction in mechanisms such as the plate and the cone-clutch.
LO5 Balance systems of rotating masses in single-plane and multi-plane applications.
