Engineering Mechanics: Statics, 7th Edition SI Version has been the go-to book for engineering mechanics principles for over 60 years – and for good reason. Now in its seventh edition, the text continues to help develop problem-solving skills in an engineering design context, with a strong emphasis on drawing free-body diagrams – the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems. This is a book that will help you throughout your engineering degree and into your career.


  • Provides a wide variety of high quality problems that are known for their accuracy, realism, applications, and variety.
  • 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 the most important skill needed to learn how to solve mechanics problems.
  • A tradition of excellence. Since 1952, this text has been a primary source for accuracy, rigor, clarity and a high standard of illustration in the coverage of mechanics theory.
