Unit 25 Textbook – Elementary Mechanics and Dynamics – USCS
Facility Operator Series Unit 25: Elementary Mechanics and Dynamics
The purpose of Elementary Mechanics and Dynamics is to develop confidence describing the physical world, using mathematical expressions. This unit introduces force, and how it is related to acceleration. It will then use the concept of force to discuss moments, and how moments can be used to solve static based problems.
This is Unit 25 of the 25-unit Facility Operator Series and prepares you for the NIULPE Topic based certification examination.
