Introduction | Vectors and Force Systems Acting on a Particle | Rigid Bodies: Equivalent Force Systems | Distributed Forces: Centroids and Center of Gravity | Equilibrium of Rigid Bodies | Analysis of Structures | Internal Forces in Structural Members | Friction | Moments of Inertia | Virtual Work | Appendix | Glossary | Problem Statements | Index

Undergraduate text which focuses on the conceptual understanding of the mechanics of rigid bodies at rest or moving at constant velocity. Mathematica is used to model the concepts of forces and moments. Vector manipulations and matrix notation in statics are introduced and solved with Mathematica. Includes approximately 1,000 problems and 95 worked sample problems.
