** ** This introduction to applied mechanics combines a straightforward, readable foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving that strips a problem to essentials and solves it in a logical, organized manner. It presents the physics principles in small elementary steps; keeps the mathematics at a reasonable level (algebra, trigonometry and geometry are used); provides an abundance of worked examples; and features problems that are as practical as possible *without* becoming too involved with many extraneous details. ** ** The volume addresses forces, vectors, and resultants, moments and couples, equilibrium, structures and members, three-dimensional equilibrium, friction, centroids and center of gravity, moment of inertia, kinematics, kinetics, work, energy, and power and impulse and momentum. ** ** For those interested in an introduction to applied mechanics.

Combines theory with practical applications within a direct, readable presentation. Theory is delivered with a few clear statements as each subject is developed through practical examples organized in a systematic format.

Combining a straightforward foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving, the new edition of *Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology* strips a problem to essentials and solves it in a logical, organized manner. By presenting physics principles in small elementary steps, the text keeps mathematics at a practical and reasonable level.

- Applied problems that minimize extraneous information while reinforcing applications in a logical sequence
- Clean diagrams in an open space format, allowing for easy reading
- 175 worked examples and 960 graded application problems of varying complexity
