INTRODUCTION
To deal with the above situations, we need to know
Mechanics is the foundation of most engineering
sciences and is an indispensable prerequisite to their
study.
Mechanics is the science which describes and
predicts the conditions of rest or motion of bodies

Engineering Mechanics
Mechanics:

## The actions and effects of forces on bodies.

Statics: Bodies at rest, or in equilibrium

Mechanics

## Dynamics: Bodies in motion, or out of equilibrium

Will be static, OR move with
constant velocity

IN EQUILIBRIUM
Velocity=0
Velocity=
constant

OUT OF EQUILIBRIUM

02/01/2017

Velocity
changing
with time

## Will accelerate (velocity changing)

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com

Dynamics:

Kinematics:
Study of motion without reference to
forces producing motion: Relations between position,
velocity, acceleration and time.
Kinetics: Relations between unbalanced forces and
the changes in motion they produce.

## E.g. Rollercoaster ride:

Kinematics: how fast, how far,
and how long it takes...
Kinetics: What forces were
involved to produce this motion?
- Weight
- Friction
- Aerodynamic drag
02/01/2017

## What are the resulting

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com
accelerations?

## Six Fundamental Concept of Mechanics

Space - associated with the motion or the position of a point P given
in terms of three coordinates measured from a reference point or
origin.
Time - definition of an event requires specification of the time and
position at which it occurred.
Mass - used to characterize and compare bodies, e.g., response to
earths gravitational attraction and resistance to change in
translational
motion.

## Six Fundamental Concept of Mechanics

Force
A force is a push or pull. An object at
rest needs a force to get it moving; a
moving object needs a force to change
its velocity.

## The magnitude of a force can be

measured using a spring scale.
02/01/2017

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com

## Six Fundamental Concept of Mechanics

Particle
A particle has a mass but size is
neglected.
When a body is idealised as a particle,
the principles of mechanics reduces to a
simplified form, since the geometry of the
body will not be concerned in the analysis
of the problem.
02/01/2017

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com

## Six Fundamental Concept of Mechanics

Rigid Body
A combination of large number of
Particles in which all the particles remain
at a fixed distance from one another
before and after application of load.
Here mass & size of the bodies are
considered when analysing the forces.

Basic Laws of
Newtons First Law: If theMechanics
resultant force on a particle is zero, the particle will remain at rest
or continue to move in a straight line.
Newtons Second Law: A particle will have an acceleration proportional to a nonzero
resultant applied force.

F ma
Newtons Third Law: The forces of action and reaction between two particles have the same
magnitude and line of action with opposite sense.

Newtons Law of Gravitation: Two particles are attracted with equal and opposite forces,

Parallelogram Law
If two vectors acting at a point be represented in
magnitude and direction by the adjacent sides of a
parallelogram, then their resultant is represented in
magnitude

and

direction

by

the

diagonal

of

the

## parallelogram passing through that point.

Parallelogram Law

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com

13

Triangle Law
If two vectors acting at a point are represented by the
two sides of a triangle taken in order, then their resultant
is represented by the third side taken in opposite order

## sine and cosine rules

When adding forces it is often
useful to consider solving the
problem using geometric rules,
rather than considering components

that

A
B
X

02/01/2017

## The cosine rule states that

A2 B 2 X 2 2 BX cos

B 2 A 2 X 2 2 AX cos
X 2 A 2 B 2 2 AB cos

S.ThangaKasiRajan, stkrajan@gmail.com

15

Principle of Transmissibility
According to this law the state of rest or motion of
the rigid body is unaltered if a force acting on the
body is replaced by another force of the same magnitude
and direction but acting anywhere on the body along the
line
of action
of the -replaced force.
Principle
of Transmissibility
Conditions of equilibrium or motion are
not affected by transmitting a force along
its line of action.
NOTE: F and F are equivalent forces.

Coordinate System
Coordinate system: used to describe the
position of a point in space and consists of
1. An origin as the
reference point
2. A set of coordinate
axes with scales and
labels
3. Choice of positive
direction for each
axis
4. Choice of unit
vectors at each
point in space

17

## Vector Representation of Forces

A vector is a quantity
that has both direction
and magnitude.

18

Application of Vectors
(1) Vectors can exist at any point P in space.
(2) Vectors have direction and magnitude.

## (3) Vector Equality: Any two vectors that have

the same direction and magnitude, are equal
no matter where in space they are located.

## Resolution of force is a reverse process in which a single

force is expressed in terms of its components. These
components are sometimes referred to as the resolved
partsy of the force.

Equilibrium of a Particle
When the resultant of all forces acting on a particle is zero, the particle is
in equilibrium.
Newtons First Law: If the resultant force on a particle is zero, the particle will
remain at rest or will continue at constant speed in a straight line.

## Particle acted upon by

two forces:
- equal magnitude
- same line of action
- opposite sense
