Engineering Mechanics is one of the fundamental branches of science which is important in the education of professional engineers
of any major. Most of the basic engineering courses, such as mechanics of materials, fluid and gas mechanics, machine design,
mechatronics, acoustics, vibrations, etc. are based on Engineering Mechanics course. In order to absorb the materials of Engineering
Mechanics, it is not enough to consume just theoretical laws and theorems-student also must develop an ability to solve practical
problems. Therefore, it is necessary to solve many problems independently. This book is a part of a four-book series designed
to supplement the Engineering Mechanics courses in the principles required to solve practical engineering problems in the
following branches of mechanics: Statics, Kinematics, Dynamics, and Advanced Kinetics. Each book contains 6-8 topics on its
specific branch and each topic features 30 problems to be assigned as homework, tests, and/or midterm/final exams with the
consent of the instructor. A solution of one similar sample problem from each topic is provided.
This second book
in the series contains six topics of Kinematics, the branch of mechanics that is concerned with the analysis of motion of
both particle and rigid bodies without reference to the cause of the motion. This book targets undergraduate students at the
sophomore/junior level majoring in science and engineering.
