Course Objectives

(i) To undestand motion of particles and bodies under the influence of various types of forces such as gravitational, frictional, electromagnetic, elastic, and contact forces. 
(ii) To understand the derivation, modification, and application of the variational approaches to mechanics such as the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods. 
(iii) To gain expertise in the formulation and solution of problems involving forces listed in (i) and the techniques in (ii).
