Mechanics II University of Tsukuba
Following “Mechanics I”, “Mechanics II ” will just concentrate on the basics of mechanics. Emphasis will be given to topics that will be useful in other disciplines, such as systems of particles, kinematics and plane motion of rigid bodies and principles about analytical vector mechanics.
Following “Mechanics I”, “Mechanics II ” will just concentrate on the basics of mechanics. Emphasis will be given to topics that will be useful in other disciplines, such as - systems of particles - kinematics and plane motion of rigid bodies - principles about analytical vector mechanics. After taking the course, the students will understand these fundamental theories and will be able to solve the associated important problems.

Lectures and Class Exercises
Online Course Requirement
1. The homework and exercises are essential in learning mechanics. - You are encouraged to solve given problems on your own at first and write the solutions directly on your A4-size report papers by hand, and to discuss the problems with other students (for instance, by using chat function on ZOOM during each class). - After completing to solve problems on your own, you take those photos by your smartphone and send them to a manaba’s report box due on the date to be assigned. 2. A midterm report and a final report will be submitted to a manaba’s report box due on the date to be assigned in a similar way. - You can use your calculator and refer course materials & textbook during solving problems.
