EASA Part 66 – Module 2 – Physics – 3 Days

Introduction –

Module 2 Covers Physics and looks at Fundamental Units, Matter, Mechanics both Static, Kinetic and Dynamic, Fluid Dynamics & Thermodynamics. Optics & Sound & Wave Motion.

On completion of the module you will be able to sit a multi choice exam and on passing will receive a completion certificate.

All Part 66 training courses are provided under the direct control, oversight and guidance of European Aviation Institute (EAI).

European Aviation Institute (EAI) is an EASA Part 147 approved Maintenance Training Organization (MTO) with Certificate of Approval No RO.147.0003. Providing Part 147 and other specialized “non EASA Part 147” training courses. Providing both integrated and modular packaged quality training solutions from our centre in Bucharest or at other preferred location.

European Aviation Institute was established with the goal of raising the standards of aeronautical training, with access to skilled instructors, the focus is on delivering best in class skills to existing and new generations of aviation technicians and engineers.

Detailed Content / Topics – The following Subjects will be addressed –

– Elements of theory of stress, strain and elasticity: tension, compression, shear and torsion;
– Nature and properties of solid, fluid and gas;
– Pressure and buoyancy in liquids (barometers).

3.2. Kinetics
– Linear movement: uniform motion in a straight line, motion under constant acceleration (motion under gravity);
– Rotational movement: uniform circular motion (centrifugal/centripetal forces);
– Periodic motion: pendular movement;Simple theory of vibration, harmonics and resonance;
– Velocity ratio, mechanical advantage and efficiency.
3.3. Dynamics
