Publisher Comments:

This best-selling book offers a concise and thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing its users' problem-solving skills and includes pedagogical features that have made Hibbeler synonymous with excellence in the field. Chapter topics cover general principles, force vectors, equilibrium of a particle, force system resultants, equilibrium of a rigid body, structural analysis, internal forces, friction, center of gravity and centroid, moments of inertia, virtual work, kinematics of a particle, kinetics of a particle: force and acceleration, kinetics of a particle: work and energy, kinetics of a particle: impulse and momentum, planar kinematics of a rigid body, planar kinetics of a rigid body: force and acceleration, planar kinetics of a rigid body: work and energy, planar kinetics of a rigid body: impulse and momentum, three-dimensional kinematics of a rigid body, three-dimensional kinetics of a rigid body, and vibrations. For individuals involved in the study of mechanical/civil/aeronautical engineering.

I like Mechanics Too Much.The way in which Mechanics has been taught in STATICS 9th edition by R.C.Hibbeler is very simple from very few easy example to high powerfull examples and problems has been discussed I Really Become Very happy after reading 9th edition.
