ES 201 Conservation & Accounting Principles 4R-0L-4C F,W
Prerequisites: EM 121 Statics & Mechanics of Materials I 4R-0L-4C F, W, S, and MA 113 Calculus III 5R-0L-5C F,W,S, and PH 111 Physics I 3.5R-1.5L-4C F,W
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

A common framework for engineering analysis is developed using the concepts of a system, accounting and conservation of extensive properties, constitutive relations, constraints, and modeling assumptions. Conservation equations for mass, charge, momentum and energy, and an entropy accounting equation are developed. Applications taken from all engineering disciplines stress constructing solutions from basic principles.
