"Mechanics is one ofthe branches ofphysics in which the number ofprinciples is at once very few and very rich in useful consequences. On the other hand, there are few sciences which have required so much thought-the conquest of a few axioms has taken more than 2000 years. "-Rene Dugas, A History 0/ Mechanics Introductory courses in engineering mechanics (statics and dynamics) are generally found very early in engineering curricula. As such, they should provide the student with a thorough background in the basic fundamentals that form the foundation for subsequent work in engi­ neering analysis and design. Consequently, our primary goal in writing Statics for Engineers and Dynamics for Engineers has been to develop the fundamental principles of engineering mechanics in a manner that the student can readily comprehend. With this comprehension, the student thus acquires the tools that would enable him/her to think through the solution ofmany types ofengineering problems using logic and sound judgment based upon fundamental principles. Approach We have made every effort to present the material in a concise but clear manner. Each subject is presented in one or more sections fol­ lowed by one or more examples, the solutions for which are presented in a detailed fashion with frequent reference to the basic underlying principles. A set of problems is provided for use in homework assign­ ments.

From Our Editors

This second volume of a comprehensive two-volume treatment of mechanics intended for engineering students. It presents dynamics in a clear and straightforward manner, emphasizing the use of free-body, impulse-momentum, and intertia-force diagrams in the solution of problems, and provides the student with a thorough background and the foundations upon which to build further work engineering analysis and design.
