Study faster, learn better, and get top grades

Modified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Statics complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers practice on topics such as orthogonal triad of unit vectors, dot or scalar product, resultant of distributed force system, noncoplanar force systems, slope of the Shear diagram, and slope of the Moment diagram. You'll also get coverage of the laws of friction, rolling resistance, the centroid of a continuous quantity, and the theorems of Pappus and Guldinus. Appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Statics; Mechanical Engineering; Engineer-in-Training Review.


  • Hundreds of solved problems
  • Support for all the major textbooks for static courses

Topics include: Vectors, Forces, Coplanar Force Systems, Noncoplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Coplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Noncoplanar Force Systems, Trusses and Cables, Forces in Beams, Friction, First Moments, Centroids, and Moments of Inertia, Virtual Work
