Engineering: Using Newton's Laws of Motion
An Engineer's Approach
Engineers work with materials to solve problems. Some build bridges across rivers. Others design structures to support heavy loads under many different conditions. Still others design roads over mountain passes and tunnels through mountains.
All engineers follow similar processes as they build and test products or solve problems.
There are many kinds of engineers: civil, biological, structural, geomechanical, municipal, biomaterials, mechanical, chemical, computer, agricultural, climate, and even laptop carrier engineers.
