Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics – Beer & Johnston – 9th Edition


The main objective of a first course in should be to develop in the the ability to analyze any problem in a simple and logical manner and to apply to its a few, well-understood, basic principles. This text is designed for the first courses in statics and offered in the sophomore or junior year, and it is hoped that it will help the instructor achieve this goal.

for : Dynamics provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage, and its problem-solving methodology gives the best opportunity to learn dynamics. This new edition features a significantly refreshed problem set, chapter openers with real-life examples, outlines previewing objectives and sample .
