Mechanics is an aspect of mechanics; a branch of physics concerning the motions of objects and their response to forces. The topics in Mechanics 2 have widespread applications in areas of mathematics such as calculus, differential equation and algebra. It can also be applied to several areas of chemistry, biology and mechanical and civil engineering.
Mechanics presents the student with an excellent opportunity to learn how to handle abstract concepts, and acts as a vehicle to upward mobility in the field of Applied Mathematics.
This course provides an introduction to the basic ideas and problem solving techniques crucial in Applied Mathematics at the tertiary level. It includes selected applications of energy and motion by varying forces. It helps students to understand the world, they live in and the relationships between macroscopic bodies, i.e., bodies that you can easily see, in the solid state.
On the completion of this course, students should be able to see the application of mathematical concepts in real life and therefore teach Mathematics with enthusiasm.
