**Content**

Write your text here...Be able to produce a mathematical description of movement in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions. Transform positions, velocities, and accelerations from one coordinate system to another system in relative motion with respect to the first one. Identify a basic set of forces, their origin, and their points of application in specific problems. Identify and isolate bodies and pictorially represent the direction and location of forces acting on the bodies. Compute the position of the center of mass and moment of inertia for different basic shapes in simple conditions. Apply the Laws of Newton to quantitative predict linear and rotational movement. Apply conservation laws to quantitative describe linear and rotational movement. Solve problems of statics. Identify systems undergoing Simple Harmonic Motion, describe the movement and computte their frequencies of oscillation.
