More About This Textbook


The second edition provides engineers with a conceptual understanding of how dynamics is applied in the field. It builds their problem-solving skills. New problems with a wider variety of difficulty levels and applications have been added. New images are included to add a visual element to the material. These show the link between an actual system and a modeled/analyzed system. Engineers will also benefit from the numerous new worked problems, algorithmic problems, and multi-part GO problems.
