### Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper covers the dynamics of rigid bodies and fundamentals of vibrations

It deals with the concepts of forces, moments, equilibrium, free body diagrams, Newton’s laws, work, energy, impulse, momentum of a rigid body and fundamental vibration systems including single, two and multi-degree of freedom systems. Forced vibrations is also covered in this paper. The theory is applied to the design of mechanical components.
