Excerpt from Applied Mechanics for Beginners

The opportunity is here taken to make several grateful acknowledgments: to Prof. Rowden, of Glasgow, from whom I received my first lessons in Mechanics, and to whom many of the methods, used in developing the principles elucidated, are due -yto Messrs. A. Walker and R. Macmillan, Demonstrators in Engineering in West Ham Technical Institute, for kindly reading the proofs; and to Prof. R. A. Gregory and Mr. A. T. Simmons for useful hints and guidance in preparing the book.

Thanks must also be given to the following firms for permission to reproduce certain illustrations from their copyright lists: Messrs. Tangyes, Ltd., for Figs. 258, 310, 311, 312, 316, 318; Messrs. Buck & Hickman, for Fig. 9; Messrs. Charles Churchill & Co., for Fig. 6; Messrs. Hoffman Mfg. Co. Ltd., for Figs. 193, 228; Messrs. Ludw. Loewe & Co., for Figs. 2, 3, 4, 5, 10; and Messrs. The Empire Roller Bearing Co. Ltd., for Fig. 194.

The Tables of Logarithms and Trigonometrical Ratios are reprinted from Mr. F. Castle's Practical Mathematics for Beginners (Macmillan).

It is almost too much to hope that a book containing so many exercises will be found entirely free from numerical errors, and I shall be very grateful if any such are pointed out to me.
