Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam, Kraige, and Bolton’s Engineering Mechanics: Statics, 9th Edition has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. This 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 includes a number of helpful sample problems. To help students build necessary visualisation and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasises drawing free-body diagrams, one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems.

New features to the ninth edition include: a thorough revision of the text to maximise rigor, clarity, readability and approachability, key concepts throughout the book that are especially marked and highlighted, Chapter Reviews that are at the end of each chapter are highlighted and provide itemised summaries of all key material, and Sample Problems that have been integrated throughout, including problems with computer-oriented solutions.


  • Provides a wide variety of high quality problems that are known for their accuracy, realism, applications, and variety. Students benefit from realistic applications that motivate their desire to learn and develop their problem solving skills:

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of how to draw free body diagrams. Through text discussion and assignable homework problems, students will learn that drawing free body diagrams is one of the most important skills needed to learn how to solve mechanics problems. Statics teaches students the appropriate techniques and then applies them consistently in solutions of mechanics problems.

  • Rich pedagogical features support ease of use. Key Concepts are highlighted within the theory presentations and chapter reviews offer itemised summaries of the material covered.
