Publisher Comments:

Supercharge your study time and jump-start your grades with this interactive tutorial from Schaum's--the best study-for-test tool to use with your computer. Not just notes on-screen, this powerful study aid gives you real answers to your study needs and more study and test prep tools for your money. By harnessing the power of Mathcad--today's leading technical calculation software--it will help you master mechanical vibrations and learn from live calculations. In only a short time, you'll achieve greater comprehension and improved grades by using the Schaum's Electronic Tutor. Inside, you get approximately 100 solved problems along with summaries of key theoretical points, hyperlinked cross-referencing, and more. And with cutting-edge Mathcad technology, every number, formula, and graph is completely interactive. You can change variables in equations and watch as Mathcad's powerful engine recalculates the solution flawlessly every time! Based on the one-of-a-kind book on engineering mechanics from Schaum's popular Outline Series, your Electronic Tutor covers it all, with sections on vectors; operations with forces; coplanar and noncoplanar force systems; trusses and cables; forces in beams; friction; first moments and centroids; kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies; moments of inertia; work and energy. Other subjects covered include current applications, such as the dynamics of orbiting, satellites, computer solutions, the inertia force method, products of inertia of masses, and multiple modes of friction. ABOUT THE AUTHOR E. W. Nelson is retired from Western Electric Company. C. L. Best is emeritus professor of engineering science at Lafayette College (Lafayette, IN). W. G. McLean is retired from Lafayette College.

Synopsis:

Study faster, learn better, and get top grades

Modified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Statics complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers practice on topics such as orthogonal triad of unit vectors, dot or scalar product, resultant of distributed force system, noncoplanar force systems, slope of the Shear diagram, and slope of the Moment diagram. You'll also get coverage of the laws of friction, rolling resistance, the centroid of a continuous quantity, and the theorems of Pappus and Guldinus. Appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Statics; Mechanical Engineering; Engineer-in-Training Review.

Features:

  • Hundreds of solved problems
  • Support for all the major textbooks for static courses

Topics include: Vectors, Forces, Coplanar Force Systems, Noncoplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Coplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Noncoplanar Force Systems, Trusses and Cables, Forces in Beams, Friction, First Moments, Centroids, and Moments of Inertia, Virtual Work

Synopsis:

Students and professionals bought more than 300,000 copies of previous editions! This new edition draws on the best mathematical tool now available to solve problems. It applies the vector approach for elegance and simplicity in theory and problems whenever appropriate. Other times, for similarly adequate solutions, scalar methods are preferred. This study guide complements class texts and proves excellent for solo study and brushing up.
