Primarily deals with the statics of particles and rigid bodies.
Vectorial methods are used extensively. Topics include equivalent
systems of forces, equilibrium of a rigid body, centroids and
centers of gravity, distributed loads, analysis of trusses, frames,
and machines, shear and bending moment in beams, and cables with
concentrated and distributed loads.
