The fast and easy way to ace your statics course

Does the study of statics stress you out? Thanks to this book, you can find balance in the study of this often-intimidating subject. You'll get a thorough introduction to this foundational branch of engineering and easy-to-follow coverage of the topics you need to ace even the most challenging university-level course.

  • Refresh yourself — get a refresher course on the mathematics you'll encounter in statics, from basic algebra and exponents to calculus, trigonometry, and geometry

  • Find your vector — discover the basic principles of vectors, learn how to depict them graphically, and use vectors to describe direction from one point to another

  • May the force be with you — learn how you can use vectors to describe forces and movements

  • Go back to the drawing board — get the lowdown on free-body diagrams, from how to draw them to how to use them to analyze problems

  • Search for stability — understand the two fundamental types of equilibrium and get an introduction to Newton's basic theorems and the techniques used to solve equilibrium problems

  • Put your statics knowledge to work — study real-world systems, from trusses, frames, and machines to submerged surfaces and beyond

Open the book and find:

  • Key concepts in statics

  • Units of measure and constants used in statics

  • Basic properties of vectors

  • Clear explanations of how forces affect objects

  • The difference between internal and external forces

  • How to draw and simplify free-body diagrams

  • Newton's laws of equilibrium

  • Important things to remember when solving a statics problem

Learn to:

  • Grasp the study of statics for success in the classroom

  • Apply complex concepts such as vectors, internal and external forces, and free-body diagrams

  • Solve problems in every aspect of statics
