**Engineering mechanics** is the study of forces that act on bodies and the resultant motion that those bodies experience. Engineering mechanics subject involves the application of the principles of mechanics to solve real-time engineering problems.

### Types of Engineering Mechanics:

Engineering mechanics can be broadly classified into two types. They are:

- Statics and
- Dynamics

#### 1. Statics:

**Statics** is the branch of mechanics that deals with the study of objects at rest. Objects at rest may or may not be under the influence of forces.

#### 2. Dynamics:

**Dynamics** is the branch of mechanics that deals with the study of objects in motion and the forces causing such motion.

##### Dynamics Types:

Dynamics can be further classified into two types. They are:

- Kinematics
- Kinetics

**2.1 Kinematics:**

Kinematics is the study of motion of bodies without consideration of the cause of the motion. Kinematics deals with the space-time relationship of the motion of a body. Some examples of kinematic concepts are displacement, velocity and acceleration.

**2.2 Kinetics:**

Kinetics is the branch of mechanics which deals with the study of motion of bodies by considering the cause of motion.
