Description

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam, Kraige, and Bolton’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics8th SI Canadian Edition has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its eighth edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. In addition to new homework problems, the text includes a number of helpful sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams- one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems.

PROBLEM ANSWERS 687

  • Text has been thoroughly revised to maximize rigor, clarity, readability and approachability
  • Key Concepts throughout the book are especially marked and highlighted
  • Chapter Reviews at the end of each chapter are highlighted and provide itemized summaries of all key material
  • Approximately 50 percent of the homework problems are new to this eighth edition. All new problems have been independently solved in order to ensure a high degree of accuracy.
  • Sample Problems have been integrated throughout, including problems with computer-oriented solutions.
  • Answers to all problems listed in a special section at the very end of the book.
  • New photographs reinforce students understanding of how the concepts relate to the real world

The features listed below have demonstrated their appeal and benefit to students over the past six decades:

•     Provides a wide variety ofhigh quality problems that are known for their accuracy, realism, applications, and variety. Students benefit from realistic applications that motivate their desire to learn and develop their problem solving skills:

•     Sample Problems with worked solutions appear throughout, providing examples and reinforcing important concepts and idea in engineering mechanics. Sample problems are isolated on specifically colored pages for quick identification

•     Introductory Problems are simple problems designed to help students gain confidence with a new topic. These appear in the problem sets following the Sample Problems.

•     Representative Problems are more challenging than Introductory Problems but are of average difficulty and length. These appear in the problem sets following the Sample Problems.

•     Computer-Oriented Problems are marked with an iconand appear in the end-of-chapter Review Problems.

•     Review Problems appear at the end of chapter.

•     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 one of the most important skills needed to learn how to solve mechanics problems. Statics teaches students the appropriate techniques and then applies them consistently in solutions of mechanics problems.
