Jong and Rogers have written an in depth text covering various topics of the first courses in statics and dynamics offered in the sophmore and junior year of engineering colleges. Students are assumed to have a background in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic differential and integralcalculus. Students with prior knowledge of college physics will have an added advantage for learning statics and dynamics. Mechanics has long been recongnized as a deductive science. However, the learning process is largely inductive. In the text, simple topics and problems precede those that aremore complex and advanced. The text is written to provide a clear and up-to-date presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics; it is aimed at helping engineering students develop an ability to apply well-established principles to analyze and solve problems in a logical andeffective manner.Jong, I. C. is the author of 'Engineering Mechanics:dynamics' with ISBN 9780030263170 and ISBN 0030263174.
