Course Aim

After finishing the course you as a student should have:

1 knowledge and understanding:
-about how to define the basic concepts of mechanics
-how to uncover, analyze and calculate the forces and moments for the simple and composite system of two-dimensional rigid bodies in equilibrium
-about how to formulate relationships and solve mechanical problems involving particle motion in two dimensions, both linear and rotational
-of thermal processes and their impact on various equipment
-on basic electrical engineering concepts in consumer installations
-how power consumption varies in different installations, both small and large facilities

2 skills and ability
-to identify, formulate and perform calculations of total forces, torque and friction in various applications
-to identify, formulate and perform calculations out of bodies in motion, both linear and rotary
-to critically examine, evaluate and compile factual information about our electricity consumption
-to forum mud and perform calculations of electricity consumption in different types of facilities
-to report on how different power consumptions looks at different types of facilities

3 ability of assessment and attitude
-on mechanics and its scientific basis and its best practice
-about electricity consumption in various forms, how we use electricity and its importance in society
