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.
