Book Description:

Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics by J.L. Meriam, L.G. Kraige book is well known for its accuracy, clarity, and applications. This book has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 50 years. Now in its new Sixth Edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of highly interesting problems related to engineering design. In the new edition, more than 40% of the homework problems are new. There are also new sample problem and more photographs that link theory to application. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems.
