Overview

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam & Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its seventh edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. More than 50% of the homework problems are new, and there are also a number of new sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams-the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems.

Non concise, formulas are given with little to now explanation . Several very different methods are used for the same type of problem without explanation.

The book presents Classical Dynamics ( Newtonian") in a consise form. It is needed to read this book to understand the basis of Dynamics. It is suitable to be seen examples.
