The second edition of Engineering Mechanics is specially designed as a textbook for undergraduate students of engineering. It provides a detailed and holistic treatment of the basic theories and principles of both statics and dynamics. Starting from the fundamental concepts of force and equilibrium along with free body diagrams, this book comprehensively covers the various analytical aspects of rigid body mechanics, including a suitable discourse on simple lifting machines. Within each chapter, the simpler topics and problemsprecede those that are more complex and advanced. Each chapter starts with the key concepts and gradually builds up on the advanced topics using detailed and easy-to-understand illustrations.
