## About the Book

Engineering Mechanics : Statics and Dynamics is a very systematic and extremely comprehensive text-book emphasizing the vectorial character of Mechanics. It meets the complete requirements of the students of Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Electronics and Aeronautical Engineering.

The Book is written in a very simple and clear manner and no knowledge of Mathematics beyond elementary Calculus is required.

The clarification of concepts is the main objective of the book. For this reason, it includes an abundance of explanatory figures (numbering over 750) and a large variety of solved examples (numbering over 350).

The book now in its 13th edition serves as a core text-book for class-room teaching. It is intended that the book shall make Mechanics more pleasurable to teach and simple, interesting and rewarding to learn.
