Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Analytical Mechanics II(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Basic Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Fundamental and Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 2 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Elective
Lecturer : SHIGEMORI Masaki Designated Professor 

•Course Purpose
This course is the continuation of Analytical Mechanics I. Based on the framework developed there, some explicit physical systems and their physics will be studied, such as motion in non-inertial frames, rigid bodies, and small oscillations. Toward the end of the course, special relativity will be introduced and relevant notions will be developed.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Analytical Mechanics I, Mathematical Physics I, and Mathematical Physics II
Physics Tutorial IIb, Quantum Mechanics II

•Course Topics
1. Mechanics in Non-Inertial Frames
2. Rotational Motion of Rigid Bodies
3. Introduction to Collision Theory
4. Special Relativity
