0.1 Resolution of the right triangle. Sides opposite, adjacent and hypotenuse.
0.2 Application of the definitions of the sine, cosine, tangent and co-secant trigonometric ratios.
0.3 Determination of an angle from the knowledge of one of the trigonometric ratios.
1. Units and dimensions
1.1 Dimensional and proportional analysis.
1.2 Units and dimensions of kinematic quantities.
1.3 Units and dimensions of dynamic quantities.
2. Scalars and vectors. (This chapter is transversal to the entire program)
2.1 Scalar physical quantities.
2.2 Vector physical quantities.
3. Introduction to the mechanics of the material point.
3.1 Definitions of instant, time interval, instantaneous position, displacement, instantaneous and average velocities, instant and average accelerations, moment of inertia, linear momentum, momentum, force, torque, energy and power.
3.2 Newton's Laws.
4. Forces.
Weight, normal reaction, stress, static and kinetic friction forces, elastic force, thrust force and pressure force.
5. Rigid Body Balance.
5.1 Free-body diagram.
5.2 Determination of the center of mass of single systems.
