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

Description

Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, the ninth edition of , , Mazurek, and Cornwell’sVector Mechanics for Engineersprovides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework to your students.

Nearly forty percent of the problems in the text are changed from the previous edition.The Beer/Johnston textbooks introduced significant pedagogical innovations into engineering mechanics teaching. The consistent, accurate problem-solving methodology gives your students the best opportunity to learn and dynamics.

At the same time, the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail have made these texts the standard for excellence.

The Beer/Johnston textbooks have over the years introduced significant pedagogical innovations into engineering mechanics teaching. Careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail has made these texts the standard for excellence.

This , the ninth edition of the classic text Vector Mechanics for : Statics & Dynamics continues in the spirit of its successful previous editions, provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and problems.
