Nationally regarded authors Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas bring a depth of experience that can't be surpassed in this third edition of Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics. They have refined their solid coverage of the material without overloading it with extraneous detail and have revised the now 2-color text to be even more concise and appropriate to today's engineering student. The text discusses the application of the fundamentals of Newtonian dynamics and applies them to real-world engineering problems. An accompanying Study Guide is also available for this text.
This textbook and its companion volume, Statics (see the April 1994 SciTech Book News), present the principles and applications of engineering mechanics. To help students master the intricacies of engineering problem analysis, there is a comprehensive discussion of every sample problem. Among the homework problems are many for which the solution is relatively straightforward in order to help students master problem-solving techniques, and many which have direct engineering relevance. The enclosed disk contains several utility programs that can be used to obtain numerical solutions to some of the problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
