About the Authors
  • This book covers statics and dynamics to provide the student with everything needed to complete typical first-year undergraduate courses. Although students often find it difficult to visualize problems and grasp the mathematics, Adrian Roberts' approach tackles concepts with many examples, exercises and helpful diagrams. A key section on background mathematics allows students to review the prerequisite mathematics needed to progress through both topics.

    • Combines statics and dynamics in one book
    • Includes a useful section on background mathematics
    • Comprehensive single volume textbook for undergraduate students
