PHY 3110: Mechanical Modeling and Analysis (2022-2023)

View all PHY classes

This course will introduce students to tools, techniques and strategies for analyzing complex mechanical phenomena. Students will use sensors and video to collect force and motion data from real systems. Theory, mathematical and computational methods will be used to develop semi-empirical models for physical systems. Topics covered may include: velocity dependent forces, oscillations, vector force fields, orbital mechanics, non-inertial reference frames, and Lagrangian mechanics.
