Known for its clarity, accuracy, and dependability, Meriam, Bolton, and Kraige’s, Engineering Mechanics: Statics 8th edition (SI version) has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than sixty years. Now in its eighth edition, the text continues to help college students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. In addition to new homework problems, the etextbook includes a number of helpful sample problems. To help college students build necessary problem-solving skills and visualization, the book strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams – one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems.
