Unit Snapshot

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

apply fundamental concepts of Newtonian dynamics in plane motion

describe the limits of the theory presented so that the material can be appropriately applied or extended

apply skills to enable mathematical modelling and analysis of simple engineering dynamic systems

apply problem-solving skills in situations where dynamically-generated forces and motions are significant.
