This course deals with the motion of bodies under the action of a single or multiple forces. It covers kinematics and kinetics of particles in rectilinear and curvilinear motions using various coordinate systems, work and energy, impulse and momentum, planar kinematics using analytical and graphical methods. Kinetics of rigid bodies using force and acceleration, work and energy, and impulse and momentum principles.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
