This scalar-based introductory statics text, ideally suited for engineering technology programs, provides first-rate treatment of rigid bodies without vector mechanics. This edition provides an extensive selection of new problems and end-of-chapter summaries. The text brings the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail that have made Beer and Johnston texts the standard for excellence in engineering mechanics education.
