Find resources for the T level in engineering, to plan your engaging sessions for students.

Download our free curriculum grid to find resources that are mapped against module 7 Mechanical principles. 

In the free download, you will find information on where to find content to support the teaching of:

7.1 Principles of motion and mechanics in engineering and manufacturing systems.

  • Newton's three laws of motion
  • Types of forces (concurrent, non-concurrent, co-planer, non-contact)
  • Simply supported beams (loading, load distribution (point, uniformly distributed, combination of point and uniformly distributed), reaction forces, loaded components, shear force, bending moments)

7.2 Principles of forces and energy.

  • Principle of conservation of momentum
  • principle of conservation of energy
  • D’Alembert’s principle
  • Potential and kinetic energy
  • Gravitational force
  • Frictional resistance
  • Mechanical work
  • Power
  • Types of power sources (mechanical, electrical, renewable)
