# Applied Mechanics Syllabus detail with marks distribution

## Applied Mechanics is the branch of physical science which deals with the laws of forces and its effect on bodies. Sir. Issac Newton used the word “mechanics” for the science which deal with machines. This course has a systematic study of different laws and principles of mechanics along with their applications to solve engineering problems.
