Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology
For courses in Statics and Dynamics offered by Engineering Technology Departments.This introduction to applied mechanics text 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 details.

Combining a straightforward foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving, the new edition of "Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology" strips a problem to essentials and solves it in a logical, organized manner. By presenting physics principles in small elementary steps, the text keeps mathematics at a practical and reasonable level. Key features of this text include: Applied problems that minimize extraneous information while reinforcing applications in a logical sequenceClean diagrams in an open space format, allowing for easy reading175 worked examples and 960 graded application problems of varying complexity
