Key words

Theoretical mechanics is the base of all other related mechchanical branches: moter engines, strength of materials, rngine building, pumps, engine fitting,...
Theoretical mechanics gives also general insight and scientific background for the understanding of the equilibrium, movement and working of mechanismes , engines and machinery.

Theoretical Mechanics has 3 major parts: statics, kinematics and dynamics.
In the statics we learn the student how to examinate the equilbrium of a simple and cmplicated solid body. At the same time he learns to calculate the reaction forces.
In the kinematics we learn about velocity and acceleration of solid bodys and mechanismes. In this part Force is not used.
Dynamics is the addition of the 2 previous parts. The student learns to see the relation between forces on a solid body or mechanism and the velocity and acceleration of this body or mechanism.

Elementary mathematics
