01: Engineering School for Everyone: Statics
Join Professor Haden to deconstruct a simple system—the pulley—and through this project, gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the machines and structures in your everyday world. As you dive into simple machines, you’ll see how learning the foundations of mechanical engineering—such as the laws of physics and conservation of momentum—can lead you to accomplish more complex tasks and systems. With this lecture, you’re taking the first step toward greater capabilities in the analysis of mechanics.
