The Eladr Protocol is a decentralized, security and efficiency enhanced Web3 noSQL database powered by IPFS as the data storage layer https://ipfs.io/, and the Cardano block chain as the rewards token platform, https://cardano.org/. It provides a JSON based, IPFS layer 2 solution for data indexing and retrieval in an 'append only' file system built with open source Node.js API libraries.

The ELADR token was designed to incentivize and reward community members as a proof of contribution. Token holders are also granted access to EduLadder.com premium features as well as associated ELADR token enabled apps.

# How to study this subject

OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course the student should be able to understand the vectorial and scalar
representation of forces and moments, static equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies both in two
dimensions and also in three dimensions. Further, he should understand the principle of work
and energy. He should be able to comprehend the effect of friction on equilibrium. He should be
able to understand the laws of motion, the kinematics of motion and the interrelationship. He
should also be able to write the dynamic equilibrium equation. All these should be achieved both
conceptually and through solved examples.
