The two volumes of "Engineering Mechanics" aim to provide students with a full grasp of the role and scope of mechanics. They include articles and detailed sample problems of use to both students and instructors. The authors give instructors the option of using computers to solve problems, adding a realistic dimension to mechanics, particularly dynamics, and the flexible organization allows instructors to tailor the material to their course needs. A clear, non-technical style, together with a series of homework problems, helps students understand the material. These volumes also highlight common student mistakes and ways of avoiding them. Volume 2 is concerned with dynamics.
