Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics and Dynamics – Beer & Johnston – 10th Edition


Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, the tenth edition of , , Mazurek, and Cornwell’s Vector for provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework to your . Nearly forty percent of the in the text are changed from the previous edition.

The Beer/Johnston textbooks introduced significant pedagogical innovations into mechanics teaching. The consistent, accurate problem-solving methodology gives your students the best opportunity to learn statics and . 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.
