Engineering Mechanics: Statics
Over the past 50 years, Meriam & Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Statics has established a highly respected tradition of excellence-a tradition that emphasizes accuracy, rigor, clarity, and applications. Now in a Sixth Edition, this classic text builds on these strengths, adding a comprehensive course management system, Wiley Plus, to the text, including an e-text, homework management, animations of concepts, and additional teaching and learning resources. New sample problems, new homework problems, and updates to content make the book more accessible. The Sixth Edition continues to provide a wide variety of high quality problems that are known for their accuracy, realism, applications, and variety motivating students to learn and develop their problem solving skills. To build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the Sixth Edition continues to offer comprehensive coverage of drawing free body diagrams- the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems.
