Keeping in mind the curricula of various institutes, the text of this present edition has been thoroughly revised and several new problems with solutions have been added to make it more competitive and useful for the students. Solutions to typical problems from statics and dynamics provide the reader sufficient capability for solving the problems of mechanics.
- Fundamentals of mechanical vibrations are explained with free-body diagrams.
- Multiple-choice questions.
- More than 150 sample problems with solutions have been provided, explaining the
applications of important principles.
