Featuring a non-calculus approach, this introduction to applied mechanics book combines a straightforward, readable foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving. It presents the physics principles in small elementary steps; keeps the mathematics at a reasonable level; provides an abundance of worked examples; and features problems that are as practical as possible without becoming too involved with many extraneous details. This edition features 7% more problems, an enhanced layout and design and a logical, disciplined approach that gives readers a sound background in core statics and dynamics competencies.  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.
