For core introductory statics courses found in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics departments. While teaching the basic principles of mechanics in an example-driven format, this innovative text takes a critical thinking approach to help introductory students learn to think like engineers. Compelling photorealistic art and a robust photograph program prompt students to visualize and think critically about engineering situations while Optional Design Examples and Computational Examples expose students to important ABET topics. This text is supported by the brand new OneKey course management system that enables instructors to post solutions, manage homework, and offer students test/quiz preparation and more via a free class Web more
