Provide your mechanical engineering students with a solid understanding of statics without the overload of extraneous detail in Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas' ENGINEERING MECHANICS: STATICS, 4E. The authors use their extensive teaching experience and first-hand knowledge to deliver a presentation that's ideally suited to the learning skills of today's students. The authors clearly introduce critical concepts using learning features that connect real problems and examples with the fundamentals of engineering mechanics. Students learn how to analyze problems successfully before substituting numbers into formulas. This approach benefits students tremendously as they encounter actual engineering situations that do not adhere to standard formulas. This book's rich, concise presentation is complemented by a useful Student Study Guide that clarifies concepts with additional examples and problems as well as a wealth of instructor resources to save you time.

We offer sample solutions for International Edition---engineering Mechanics: Statics, 4th Edition homework problems. See examples below:
