The scholars finishing this course ar expected to know the ideas of
forces and its resolution in numerous planes, resultant of force system, Forces engaged on a body,
their free body diagrams mistreatment graphical strategies. they’re needed to know the ideas
of centre of gravity and moments of inertia and their application, Analysis of frames and trusses,
different types of motion, friction and application of labor – energy methodology.
