Office Hours: Monday-Wednesday 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM or by appointment (Instructor).
Mon-Wed-Thu-Fri 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM (Graduate Teaching Assistant)

Catalog Description: Fundamental concepts of mechanics, including resultants of force
systems, free body diagrams, equilibrium of rigid bodies and analysis of structures.

Course Objective: To introduce the fundamental principles of mechanics and their
applications to problems of engineering.

Pre-requisites: PHY 2048 and MAC 2312 (may be taken concurrently)
.
Pre-requisites by Topic: Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Vector Algebra, Single
Variable Differential and Integral Calculus.

Text-book:
Engineering Mechanics-Statics; R.C. Hibbeler, Eleventh Edition, Prentice Hall Publishing
Company, 2006 (text book only
).

Grading Policy:
• Exam 1: 25% (February 18, 2008)
• Exam 2: 25% (April 2, 2008)
• Homework and Quizzes: 10% (during lectures)
• Final Exam: 40% (April 28, 2008)
The grading scale is tentatively given as follows. Final grades might slightly be curved based
on the distribution of the class final average.
Grading Scale: A≥90 B=80-89 C=70-79 D=60-69 F<60

Quizzes and Homework Assignments: There will be several in class quizzes to track the
progress of the students. These quizzes may be announced or unannounced. These quizzes
will be graded and included in the final grade. Suggested problems from course text will also
be provided. Students are highly encouraged to study these problems.

Selected sets of suggested problems or other problems may be asked to be turned in as
announced by the instructor. If this is the case, all work submitted must be done neatly and
professionally, by showing clearly all steps of the solution and labeling all answers.

Hardcopy homeworks shall be submitted before the beginning of the class on the due date.
Late submissions will not be accepted. Hardcopy homework submissions must include the
following four parts (separated by dashed lines) (1) Problem statement with diagrams (photo
or hand copies), (2) Diagrams for formulation (e.g. free body diagrams), (3) Theory,
assumptions and formulas, (4) Solution steps and results (results should be boxed in with
units). No copying from other’s homeworks. Homework preparation guidelines can be found
at
http://www.cee.ucf.edu/info/undergrad/CEE%20HW%20Guidelines%20-%20Word.doc


Attendance: No make up lectures or tests will be given. Missed exams, quizzes or
homeworks will be excluded under exceptional circumstances
(such as verifiable medical
emergencies, accidents, legal obligations) and at the discretion of the instructor. Cell phones
and Blackberries are to be turned off during the class time. Pocket PCs and laptops are to be
turned off for full attention to the class unless permission is given by the instructor to use
them.

Academic Integrity: Academic Dishonesty is a very serious offense and will result in a
failing grade. Cheating, academic fraud and plagiarism are examples of academic dishonesty.
UCF Golden Rule determines all student conduct.

Calculator Policy: Any calculator is allowed in exams, but no laptop computers. Calculators
that can solve vector operations, systems of equations and integrations are recommended.
Proficiency in using the calculators for these functions will be expected. The instructor
reserves the right to disallow certain equipment (e.g. Pocket PC, Blackberry or any other that
may have communication functions.)
