# Mechanics I

In this section you can find all information connected with our course Mechanics I. Below I have listed topics that we supposed to do during our meetings (week by week). We have already done first two topics during our meetings.

For each of these topics I have provided a reference in order to simplyfy porcess of searchnig those in many electronic sources. This reference is optional and if you will find similar topics in other references feel free to use them. However, before you do this pleas send me an information about your reference. I will check if it is corresponding with the topics that I gave.

TOPICS

2. Convergent forces systems. Coplanar forces systems. Theorem of three forces – Chapter 3 pp. 89-115 R. C. HIBBELER „Statics and Dynamics”
3. Divergent system of forces. Force system resultants. Moment (torque) of a Force. Moment of a Couple – Chapter 4 pp. 117-182 R. C. HIBBELER „Statics and Dynamics”

13. Velociteis in planar movement

I will be successively updating information at this site. First of all I will focus on the practical part of the topics that I gave you above. I will introduce problems, that you must be able to solve after this course, but for each of problems I will prepare also example with solution.
