# Engineering Dynamics

Cambridge University Press, Dec 24, 2007 - Science
This text is a modern vector-oriented treatment of classical dynamics and its application to engineering problems. Based on Ginsberg's Advanced Engineering Dynamics, 2nd edition, it develops a broad spectrum of kinematical concepts, which provide the framework for formulations of kinetics principles following the Newton-Euler and analytical approaches. This fresh treatment features many expanded and new derivations, with an emphasis on both breadth and depth and a focus on making the subject accessible to individuals from a broad range of backgrounds. Numerous examples implement a consistent pedagogical structure. Many new homework problems were added and their variety increased.

Page 2 - The length of the arrow is proportional to the magnitude of the particle velocity.
Page 14 - Indeed, the time derivative of a, which is called the jerk, occurs primarily in considerations of ride comfort for vehicles. Newton's laws have been translated in a variety of ways from their original statement in the Principia (1687), which was in Latin. We shall use the following version. First Law The velocity of a particle can only be changed by the application of a force. Second Law The resultant force (that is, the sum of all forces) acting on a particle is proportional to the acceleration...
