Book Description

Introduction to engineering mechanics: statics, for those who love to learn. Concepts include: particles and rigid body equilibrium equations, distributed loads, shear and moment diagrams, trusses, method of joints and sections, & inertia.

This is the first of two courses to describe how objects move and the forces that cause motion. This combines math and physics fundamentals with real-world application. A structured problem-solving process is included, and by the end of the book, you should be able to recognize and describe motion all around you in your everyday life.
