This text helps to develop a student’s ability first to analyze problems in a simple and logical manner, and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems.
Continuing in the spirit of previous editions, this edition of Beer, Johnston Vector Mechanics for Engineers, provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online homework problems to your students. Nearly forty percent of the problems in the text are changed from the previous edition.
The Beer/Johnston textbooks introduced significant pedagogical innovations into engineering mechanics teaching. The consistent, accurate problem-solving methodology gives your students the best opportunity to learn statics and dynamics. At the same time, the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail have made these texts the standard for excellence.
