Study faster, learn better, and get top grades. Modified to conform to the current curriculum, "Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Statics" complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers practice on topics such as orthogonal triad of unit vectors, dot or scalar product, resultant of distributed force system, noncoplanar force systems, slope of the Shear diagram, and slope of the Moment diagram. You'll also get coverage of the laws of friction, rolling resistance, the centroid of a continuous quantity, and the theorems of Pappus and Guldinus. This title is appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Statics; Mechanical Engineering; Engineer-in-Training Review. It features hundreds of solved problems. It offers support for all the major textbooks for static courses. Topics covered in this title include: Vectors, Forces, Coplanar Force Systems, Noncoplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Coplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Noncoplanar Force Systems, Trusses and Cables, Forces in Beams, Friction, First Moments, Centroids, and Moments of Inertia, and Virtual Work.
