A primary objective in a first course in mechanics is to help develop a college student’s ability first to analyze problems in a logical and simple manner and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A very strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems. This latest edition of Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics 12th edition (PDF) will help instructors achieve these goals. Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, this 12th edition provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your mechanic students. The twelfth edition has many new case studies and enhancements in the textbook and in Connect. The hallmark of the Beer-Johnston series has been the problem sets. This edition is not different. Over 650 of the homework problems in the textbook are revised or new. One of the characteristics of the approach used in this ebook is that mechanics of particles is clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of the more difficult concepts. Additionally Connect has over 100 Free-Body Diagram Tool Problems and Process-Oriented Problems.
McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect (sold separately) is also available. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers college students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the instructors to assign homework tests and quizzes easily and automatically grades and records the scores of all the student’s work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a “multi-step solution” which helps move the math students’ learning along if they experience difficulty.
