Book Description

Study faster, learn better, and get top grades

Modified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers extra practice on topics such as rectilinear motion, curvilinear motion, rectangular components, tangential and normal components, and radial and transverse components. You’ll also get coverage on acceleration, D'Alembert's Principle, plane of a rigid body, and rotation. Appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Dynamics; Fundamentals of Engineering.


  • 765 solved problems
  • Additional material on instantaneous axis of rotation and Coriolis' Acceleration
  • Support for all the major textbooks for dynamics courses

Topics include: Kinematics of a Particle, Kinetics of a Particle, Kinematics of a Rigid Body, Kinetics of a Rigid Body, Work and Energy, Impulse and Momentum, Mechanical Vibrations

4Good fo reviewing and for tutoring
By Thomas S Cull
The problems are an excellent scatter of many techniques and types. However, the solutions often go to numerical substitution much earlier in the algebraic process than I like. Usually in physics, the symbolic representations of values like mass, gravity, angular speed are left as"m", "g", and "omega" until the last step. This book tends to substitute 9.8 m/s^2 for gravity or the number value of a term right away. So the solution looks like disjoint algebra at the end.

3Of Average Help. Left Wanting and Needing More
By Josh Gilliam
Not exaclty as helpful as I thought it would be for Dynamics. There is a lot left desired in this book. Other Schaum's books have been much more helpful. There are some sections where it's helpful, but overall it wasn't as helpful as the textbook generally. Dynamics is a quite tough class in engineering and a first real introduction to Newton's 2nd Law - F = ma and it's MANY applications.
