This well- received and authoritative text has been revised with the objective to increase the coverage and to aid the students in their efforts at self-study by including solved examples at the end of the chapters. The presentation is lucid adn direct, adn the pedagogy followed in the book would help the students to have a firm grip on the basic concepts in mechanics. Although the book is largely based on Newtonian formulation, a separate chapter on Lagarangian adn Hamiltonian formulations has been added in this edition. In addition, two new chapters on Mechanics of Continuous Media and Charged Particle Dynamics make the book more useful. About 90 additional solved examples and another 90 unsolved problems give ample opportunity to the students for practice. Key features Concepts illustrated with examples Large number of practice problems and review questions Chapter 1 Scope and Historical Development Chapter 2 Vector Analysis Chapter 3 Coordinate Systems and Kinematics Chapter 4 Particle Dynamics Chapter 5 Conservation Laws and Properties of Space and Time Chapter 6 INverse Square Law Force Chapter 7 Elastic and Inelastic Collisions Chapter 8 Dynamics of Rigit Bodies Chapter 9 Oscillatory Motion Chapter 10 Frames of Reference Chapter 11 Lorentz Transformations and their Relativistic Consequences Chapter 12 Relativistic Energy and Momentum: Four-Vectors Chapter 13 Charged Particle Dynamics Chapter 14 Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Formalism Chapter 15 Mechanics of Continuous Media Section A: Elasticity Section B: Fluid Dynamics Printed Pages: 599.
