## Description

Meriam's Engineering Mechanics is a classic textbook for the first engineering course in mechanics that has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, it is written in a style which is both concise and friendly, with major emphasis on basic principles and methods. This text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. It effectively demonstrates both the cohesiveness of the relatively few fundamental ideas and the great variety of problems which these few ideas will solve.
