The objectives of this video are to discuss about rectilinear motion followed by an introduction to useful formulas needed to solve problems about rectilinear motion. Basically, rectilinear motion is a motion acting in a single direction where acceleration could be both constant and variable. Moving on, the video briefly talks about the scalar and vector terms e.g., distances, displacement, speed and velocity that are related to understand to clear concept on rectilinear motion of a body.

Next, the video introduces the formulas used to describe rectilinear motions using the terms initial velocity, final velocity, displacement, acceleration and time. Later, the video explains an important note clearing the fact that if acceleration is given as a function it is reasonably possible to find out the function which defines velocity & displacement. Finally, the video refers to watch next video to get in touch with a couple of workouts on the subject topic of rectilinear motions.

### Course Description

Mechanics, the study of forces and physical bodies, underpins a very large proportion of all forms of engineering. A thorough understanding of mechanics is essential to any successful engineer. This course helps develop an understanding of the nature of forces with consideration for how they may be simplified in an engineering context. The conditions of equilibrium are then used to solve a number of problems in 2D and 3D before moving on to a broad range of topics including centroids, distributed loads, friction and virtual work. The course will also provide an introduction to dynamics, with a particular focus on the effects that forces have upon motion.
