The 2nd edition of Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics provides engineers with a conceptual understanding of how dynamics is applied in the field. Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 2nd Edition offers a student-focused approach to Dynamics with new problems and images that develop problem solving skills. Engineers will benefit from the numerous worked problems, algorithmic problems and multi-part GO problems. Additional images have been added, showing a link between an actual system and a modeled/analyzed system. The importance of communicating solutions through graphics is continuously emphasized with a focus on drawing correct free body diagrams and inertial response diagrams.
