Introduction to Statics and Dynamics

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. Prerequisite and co-requisite skills. We assume you start with some math skills. ✎ Freshman calculus. Readers are assumed to have facility with the basic geometry, algebra, trigonometry, differentiation and integration used in elementary calculus. Some of these topics are briefly reviewed in this book, but not as ab initio tutorials. ✎ This books shows how to set up algebraic and differential equations for computer solution. You need to know, or be... Show More
