Description

This supplement will provide all the necessary instructions to use Mathematica computational software to aid in solving Dynamics problems. You are encouraged to open your version of Mathematica and try the various steps described in this supplement as you read through it. It is closely coupled to the accompanying text and works through many of the sample problems for each chapter in detail. The manual was created in Mathematica and demonstrates how quality technical documents can be created entirely using the software. This supplement is not meant to replace the manual for Mathematica or to show all the features of the software.
