Study faster, learn better, and get top grades
Modified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers extra practice on topics such as rectilinear motion, curvilinear motion, rectangular components, tangential and normal components, and radial and transverse components. You’ll also get coverage on acceleration, D'Alembert's Principle, plane of a rigid body, and rotation. Appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Dynamics; Fundamentals of Engineering.
- 765 solved problems
- Additional material on instantaneous axis of rotation and Coriolis' Acceleration
- Support for all the major textbooks for dynamics courses
Topics include: Kinematics of a Particle, Kinetics of a Particle, Kinematics of a Rigid Body, Kinetics of a Rigid Body, Work and Energy, Impulse and Momentum, Mechanical Vibrations
