Learning outcomes

After finishing the module the students are able to understand and master:
- the methodological basis for the formulation of elementary
kinematic and kinetic problems
- the central concepts of the movement of an object as a particle
(point mass) and an object as a rigid body
- Newton's axioms and basic laws as well as the principle of d 'Alembert
and explain their formal approaches
- basic problems of kinematics and kinetics
- the fundamentals of oscillatory motion with one degree of freedom
- simple tasks of free undamped and damped vibrating systems
(oscillatory motion)
