For courses in Statics and Dynamics offered by Engineering Technology Departments.This introduction to applied mechanics combines a straightforward, readable foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving that strips a problem to essentials and solves it in a logical, organized manner. It presents the physics principles in small elementary steps; keeps the mathematics at a reasonable level (algebra, trigonometry and geometry are used); provides an abundance of worked examples; and features problems that are as practical as possible without becoming too involved with many extraneous more
