Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, 9th Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119571704

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its ninth 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 includes a number of helpful sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams- one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems.


Dynamics can be a major frustration for those who don’t relate to the logic behind the material — and this includes many of them! Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics meets your needs by combining rigour with user friendliness. The presentation in this text is very personalised, giving students the sense that they are having a one-on-one discussion with the authors. This minimizes the air of mystery that a more austere presentation can engender, and aids immensely in the your ability to retain and apply the material. The authors do not skimp on rigour but at the same time work tirelessly to make the material accessible and, as far as possible, fun to learn.


  • New & Updated Exercises: The Second Edition includes over 300 completely new exercises. In addition to the many new exercises, over 100 exercises have been updated.
  • Multiple Variables and Data Visualisation: A new section on multiple variables and data visualisation is incorporated into Chapter 2.
  • StatKey Enhanced: The online interactive dynamic software has been enhanced, including adding the option to upload whole datasets with multiple variables.
