Content and learning outcomes
Particle dynamics in accelerating systems. Particle system and rigid body mechanics.
Intended learning outcomes
After completing the course the student should be able to:
- identify a concrete mechanical problem, and choose suitable mechanical models based on a problem description,
- translate the mechanical model into a mathematical model,
- mathematically treat the problem and critically analyze the significance of the result,
in order to use a physical mindset and communicate this within the framework of engineering science contexts.
Literature and preparations
Completed course SG1120 Mechanics I, SG1130 Mechanics I or SG1132 Mechanics I with project.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Assignments, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 1.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- TEN2 - Examination, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
The examiner, in consultation with the KTH coordinator for disability (Funka), decides on any adapted examination for students with documented, permanent disability. The examiner may allow another examination form when re-examining individual students.
Other requirements for final grade
INL1 - Assignment, 1.5, grade scale: P, F
TENA - Theory/KS, 1.5, grade scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
TENB - Problem exam, 3.0, grade scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
