About this book

Introduction

A sound knowledge of Mechanics is fundamental to an understanding of much of physics and engineering. This book takes the reader through the fundamentals of the subject in as informal a manner as possible, without sacrificing mathematical rigour.
The second edition has new material on orbits, rigid body mechanics and non linear dynamics to produce a more comprehensive text that serves the needs of undergraduate students of mathematics, physics and engineering.

Keywords
