Over the past 50 years, Meriam & Kraige's Engineering Mechanics has established a highly respected tradition of excellence. Readers turn to this book because of its emphasis on accuracy, rigor, clarity, and applications. The new sixth edition continues this tradition while also improving the accessibility of the material. The explanations of concepts are now easier to understand and more worked examples have been incorporated throughout the pages.
Known for its accuracy, clarity, and applications, Meriam & Kraige’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 50 years. Now in its new Sixth Edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of highly interesting problems related to engineering design. In the new edition, more than 40% of the homework problems are new. There are also new sample problem and more photographs that link theory to application. 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.
