on the model curriculum prepared by AICTE
the seven topics listed under the heading Kinematics of Machine
belongs to dynamics. These are:
ii. Inertia force analysis
On the other
hand, the model curriculum of Dynamics of Machines includes
the following topic:
of Gears and Gear trains
It is decided
that the topics on dynamics listed above (i to v) will be covered
in the course on Dynamics of Machines whereas the topic (a)
above will be covered in Kinematics of Machines course.
