Provides clear and through presentation of the theory and applications of engineering mechanics. New to this edition: 20% NEW problems, categorization of homework problems as basic, challenging, computer application or design oriented, NEW design problems. FIT exam review problems, enhancement of free-body diagram concept, photographs added to enhance the realism of the book.
New edition of a textbook on the theory and applications of engineering mechanics. Topics covered include kinematics and kinetics of particles, planar kinematics of a rigid body, three- dimensional kinematics of a rigid body, and vibrations. Includes computer problems, design projects, and countless color diagrams. Appends formulae and a set of problems typically found on the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination.
