About The Book

A first course in mechanics should develop a student’s ability to analyze and solve problems using well-understood basic principles applied in a simple logical manner. The emphasis of this text focuses on the correct understanding of the principles of mechanics and on their application to the solution of engineering problems. In order to achieve the goal of being able to analyze mechanics problems.
