Intermediate Dynamics
Kinematics and Kinetics of Rigid Bodies
What is Intermediate Dynamics?
Intermediate Dynamics is the course that introduces 2d and 3d kinetics and kinematics of rigid bodies. This material is typically found in a senior or graduate level university course.
This course will be a follow on to my original Dynamics class. In this one, we will specifically cover chapters 1721 of the Hibbeler textbook.
What comes with the course?
 13+ hours of ondemand lecture videos that give you easytofollow explanations
 38 fullyworked examples in a medium to hard range of difficulty
 13 homework sets with solutions for you to test your knowledge
 Downloadable outline of notes with example problem statements to help you follow along with the lectures
 Certificate of completion provided once the course is completed
 Email access to the instructor in case you have questions
 30day money back guarantee so there's no risk for you to try it out. Please see the Terms of Use here for more details.

Who should enroll in this course?
 Engineers and engineering students wanting a greater understanding of 2d and 3d dynamics of rigid bodies
 Graduate students preparing for qualifying exams in Dynamics
 Students and professionals who are preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam
What do I need to know before starting?
 Calculus  you need to be familiar with derivative and integrals
 Dynamics  you need to know kinematics and kinetics of particles and 2d relative motion of rigid bodies
Is there a recommended textbook?
I, along with most students I've taught, really like the Engineering Mechanics  Dynamics text by Hibbeler. If you don't already have a textbook this one would be a great resource. Although it is not required for this course, it is strongly recommended .
Why is this course better than the others?
Have you ever been in a class and been frustrated by the lack of fullyworked examples? This will not be that class. I understand the frustration  I used to feel the same way. Because of that, I teach my classes in a way that I would've preferred as a student. Handwritten notes, simple explanations, and plenty of examples in a variety of difficulty levels. You will not find PowerPoint slides here.

Your Instructor
Teaching is my passion. As a University professor I have taught 1000's of students and watched them transform from freshmen into successful engineers. Unlike many STEM professors, I believe in teaching complex material in simple, easytounderstand terms. I teach my courses in a way I wish I had been taught: straightforward lectures with plenty of examples on how to apply the theory being learned.
In addition to University experience, I also worked as an engineer for 8 years in industry at a wellknown defense company. This experience enables me to focus in on topics that are actually applicable in the real world, not just textbook problems.
