The main objective of a first course in mechanics should be to develop in the engineering student the ability to analyze any problem in a simple and logical manner and to apply to its solution a few, well-understood, basic principles. This text is designed for the first courses in statics and dynamics offered in the sophomore or junior year, and it is hoped that it will help the instructor achieve this goal.
Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage, and its problem-solving methodology gives students 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 problems.
