This best-selling book offers a concise and thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing its users' problem-solving skills and includes pedagogical features that have made Hibbeler synonymous with excellence in the field. Chapter topics cover general principles, force vectors, equilibrium of a particle, force system resultants, equilibrium of a rigid body, structural analysis, internal forces, friction, center of gravity and centroid, moments of inertia, virtual work, kinematics of a particle, kinetics of a particle: force and acceleration, kinetics of a particle: work and energy, kinetics of a particle: impulse and momentum, planar kinematics of a rigid body, planar kinetics of a rigid body: force and acceleration, planar kinetics of a rigid body: work and energy, planar kinetics of a rigid body: impulse and momentum, three-dimensional kinematics of a rigid body, three-dimensional kinetics of a rigid body, and vibrations. For individuals involved in the study of mechanical/civil/aeronautical engineering.Hibbeler, Russell C. is the author of 'Engineering Mechanics Dynamics', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130200044 and ISBN 0130200042.
