## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides mathematical methods for describing mechanical systems. In particular the motion of systems with many degrees of freedom is studied and the properties of the center-of-mass of continuous systems are analyzed. Rigid body, moments of inertia and specific rigid body motions are analyzed in details.

Teaching methods

The course consists of lectures and exercises

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Elements of vector calculus. Kinematics and relative kinematics. Dynamics and statics of material points. Cardinal equations. Center of mass. Conservation laws. Energy theorem. Mechanics of the rigid body. Moments of inertia. Rigid body with a fixed axis, a fixed point, without contraints. Statics of wires
