Objectives of the Course
1. to be able to write equations of motion for simple mechanical systems, and to integrate these equations. 2. In cases where direct integration is not feasible, students are expected to make predictions based on conservation laws. 3. To apply Newton’s laws and conservation laws to dynamical systems.
