A Course of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists, Volume 3: Theoretical Mechanics details the fundamentals concepts of theoretical mechanics. The title first covers the foundations of mechanics, and then proceeds to tackling plane statics and virtual work. Next, the selection talks about continuously distributed forces. The text also deals with kinematics, along with particle dynamics. Chapter VII covers systems of particles, while Chapter VIII tackles the uniplanar motion of a rigid body. The ninth chapter discusses stability, and the last chapter details impulsive motion and variable mass. The book will be of great use to students of engineering and pure and applied mathematics.
