This book, now in its second edition, is written for B.E./B.Tech. students of various technical universities to address the course curriculum in Engineering Mechanics. It is designed to meet the needs of the first-year undergraduate students of all branches of engineering. The text provides a sound understanding of the fundamentals of the subject in the areas of mechanics and strength of materials.
The book presents succinct coverage of the theory, definitions and formulae. It is well supported by plenty of clear-cut diagrams, suitable examples and worked problems in order to make the underlying principles comprehensive.
The thoroughly revised second edition includes :
Topics on moment of inertia of semicircles and quarter circles, relative motion, angular motion of a rigid body, projectiles, impact and non-centroidal rotation.
More solved problems culled from the latest university and competitive examination papers.
Key Features :
Presents an introduction to basic engineering mechanics topics required by all engineering students in their studies.
Provides a large number of worked problems which help in under-standing theory.
Includes objective type questions with explanatory answers to help students in preparing for competitive examinations.
