This is an unabridged republication of the sixth revised edition of a standard work on the fundamentals of dynamics. It provides full coverage of basic theorems, motions and forces, and applications of calculus to dynamics studies. Its full demonstrations and analyses are particularly valuable, and it contains much material that has not been duplicated in more recent texts, including the application of the calculus of finite differences to the dynamics of rigid bodies.
Highly concrete and practical, this text features hundreds of applied situations and full demonstrations. More than 400 problems are provided for students to work out; most of them include instructions for the solution. A brilliant section on the calculus of variations is of special interest.
