Introduction to Statics and Dynamics
This is an engineering statics and dynamics text. It is both an introduction, aimed primarily at middle-level engineering students, and a reference. The book emphasizes use of vectors, free-body diagrams, momentum and energy balance and computation. More importantly, perhaps, the book is meant to help build an intuition for mechanics.
