## Course Plan

• Measurement: Standards and units, dimensional analysis
• Motion in one dimension: Descriptions of motion, average and instantaneous velocities, motion with constant acceleration
• Vectors: Vector components, adding vectors, multiplication of vectors
• Motion in two dimensions: motion with constant acceleration, uniform circular motion, relative motion
• Forces and laws of motion: Newtonâ€™s first, second and third laws and their applications
• Motion with friction: Static and kinetic friction
• Work and energy: Work done by constant forces, kinetic energy, work-energy theorem, power
• Potential energy: Gravitational potential energy and elastic potential energy
• Linear momentum: Single particle and a system of particles, center of mass, conservation of linear momentum
• Collisions: Impulse and momentum, elastic and plastic collisions
• Rotational motion: Rotation with constant angular acceleration, moment of inertia, kinetic energy of rotation, torque, combined rotational and translational motion
• Angular momentum: Single particle and a system of particles, angular momentum and angular velocity, conservation of angular momentum
