 Cursusdoelen
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } At the end of this course the student demonstrates ability to   1. view and analyse motion phenomena through the lens of Newtonian mechanics describe linear/rotational motion (1D/2D) in terms of time dependent trajectories and derivatives (velocity, acceleration) identify and describe the forces that act on a subsystem (body) in a given situation and present this in a free body force diagram recognize archetypal patterns of motion and explain (from a mechanics point of view) how these come about exploit the system nature of Newton’s laws by selecting appropriate systems and subsystems for analysis 2. predict the behaviour of mechanical systems by constructing and evaluating mathematical models translate a system/motion/force analysis into an equation of motion using Newton’s three laws of motion compute motion trajectories based on an equation of motion expose (absence of) relations between parameters in a problem through mathematical reasoning and parameter studies judge if a model is physically sound by performing basic sanity checks (e.g. units & limiting cases) and by comparing its predictions to experience/experiment 3. conduct basic experiments for model validation purposes judge what data needs to be collected to validate (an aspect of) a model use technology (video cameras, tracking/data analysis software) to collect and process data calibrate time and distance measurements collect data in a systematic way 4. present, interpret and discuss theoretical predictions and experimental findings present, interpret and discuss modelling results in parameter form present, interpret and discuss data in graphs connect and compare theoretical predictions and experimental findings
