2. Mechanics

 

2.1 Statics

  • Forces, moments and couples, representation as vectors;
  • Centre of gravity;
  • Elements of theory of stress, strain and elasticity: tension, compression,shear and torsion;
  • Nature and properties of solid, fluid and gas;
  • Pressure and buoyancy in liquids (barometers).

2.2 Kinetic

  • Linear movement: uniform motion in a straight line, motion underconstant acceleration (motion under gravity);
  • Rotational movement: uniform circular motion (centrifuga l/ centripetalforces);
  • Periodic motion: pendular movement;
  • Simple theory of vibration, harmonics and resonance;
  • Velocity ratio, mechanical advantage and efficiency.
