| About The Book ENGINEERING MECHANICS
Designed to serve as a textbook for the first-year B.E./B. Tech. students of all branches as well as for the AMIE students, it covers the syllabi of almost all universities and institutes. This book provides a thorough understanding of the principles and applications of Engineering Mechanics. A lucid pattern, both in terms of language and content, has been adopted throughout the text.
Beginning with an introduction to the subject, the book provides a detailed treatment of systems of forces and elaborately explains the concepts of centroid and centre of gravity, moment of inertia, virtual work, friction, kinematics of particle and motion of projectiles. It also discusses the laws of motion, power and energy, and collision of elastic bodies in dynamics. The topics are dealt with in a well-organized sequence with proper explanations and simple mathematical formulations.
