Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 8th Edition SI Version

ISBN: 9781119044819

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam, Kraige, and Bolton’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 8th Edition SI Version has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles to students for more than 60 years. Now in its eighth edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. In addition to new homework problems, the text also includes a number of helpful sample problems. Students benefit from realistic applications that motivate their desire to learn and develop their skills.
Designed to help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 8th Edition, SI Version strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams with comprehensive coverage on how to draw these diagrams – one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems. Statics teaches students the appropriate techniques and then applies them consistently in solutions of mechanics problems.

Approximately 50 percent of the homework problems are new to this eighth edition. All new problems have been independently solved in order to ensure a high degree of accuracy.
