About the Book

Written in a comprehensive manner, this book elaborates on the tricky aspects of the motion of particle and its cause, forces and vectors, lifting machines and pulleys, inertia and projectiles, juxtapositioning them with relevant, neat illustrations, which make the science of engineering mechanics an interesting study for aspiring engineers. The book, has a large number of theoretical questions, numerical problems and a highly informative objective-type question bank. It caters to the learning needs of BE/BTech students and also those preparing for competitive exams.
