Offers a concise and thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing users' problem-solving skills. Features new "Photorealistc" figures (approximately 200) that have been rendered in often 3D photo quality detail to appeal to visual learners. Features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. A thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and applications includes some of these topics: Kinematics of a Particle; Kinetics of a Particle: Force and Acceleration; Kinetics of a Particle: Work and Energy; Kinetics of a Particle: Impulse and Momentum; Planar Kinematics of a Rigid Body; Planar Kinetics of a Rigid Body: Force and Acceleration; Planar Kinetics of a Rigid Body: Work and Energy; Planar Kinetics of a Rigid Body: Impulse and Momentum; Three-Dimensional Kinematics of a Rigid Body; Three-Dimensional Kinetics of a Rigid Body; and Vibrations. For professionals in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics careers.
