Hey everyone! I thought I give yall an update on why I haven’t been on the boards that much. Super busy with my first engineering class: Engineering Mechanics: Statics. It’s a six week course that I’m taking over the summer that entwines a crap load of math and physics. I haven’t even taken a college level physics class yet (I have 3 to take), and haven’t even taken Cal. 2 and 3, but I’m still holding my own. I had lots of Cal exposure in high school, so that is allowing me to hang with big guns.

For those who aren’t familiar with Engineering Mechanics, here’s a very general definition. It’s split up into two topics: Statics (the one I’m one in) and Dynamics. Statics is the study of rigid bodies where as Dynamics is the study of fluid/motion bodies. For more specifics do some research on Google.

I have my first test on Tuesday, and my mind is filled with nothing but this class. It’s going to be four questions (2 from Chapter 2 and 2 from Chapter 3). I can barely remember my actions as of yesterday, but I can solve things such as the moment of forces. I’m really looking forward to our next chapter because I finally get to do the stuff I’m a natural at: differential and integral calculus. :D Add some physics behind it and should be make more it fun.

This is my book ($150 used):

Every practicing engineer’s, chemist’s, physicists’, and mathematician’s best friend :cool: (I have an additional graphing and scientific calculator too):

And this is just the beginning, but I love the challenge. So I hope everyone is doing good and hanging in there. It kills me not to be on here much, but with great sacrifices come great rewards. Lil D will be back guns a blazing soon. :punch:
