Back cover copy

Combining graphical and mathematical approaches to the analysis and synthesis of both classical and modern mechanism problems, this book is a combination text/workbook that provides a comprehensive learning module when used with a kinematics/mechanism design text.

Emphasizing application rather than theory, the text portion of Applied Kinematics Worktext provides important background information to increase students' problem-solving skills in kinematics. Using basic drafting principles, algebra, trigonometry, and physics, each topic provides a multitude of exercises.

The workbook portion of the text presents contemporary mechanism problems to stimulate student interest and apply and reinforce the principles introduced in the text.
