Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

While covering the basic principles of mechanics in an example-driven format, this innovative book emphasizes critical thinking by presenting the reader with engineering situations. Compelling photorealistic art, and a robust photograph program helps readers to connect visually to the topics discussed. Features strong coverage of FBDs and important ABET topics. Chapter topics include: Vectors; Forces; Systems of Forces and Moments; Objects in Equilibrium; Structures In Equilibrium; Centroids and Centers of Mass; Moments of Inertia; Friction; Internal Forces and Moments; Virtual Work and Potential Energy. For professionals in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics fields.

Synopsis:

This textbook is designed for introductory statics courses found in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics departments. It better enables students to learn challenging material through effective, efficient examples and explanations.
