The worked examples correspond to the first year of the Ordinary National Certificate in Engineering, which are supported with theories discussed in this book. The calculations in this text have all been made with the assistance of a slide rule and it is recommended that the reader acquire a slide rule to make full use of this publication. The topics covered include forces and moments; beams, shear force, and bending moment diagrams; velocity and acceleration; friction; and work, power, and energy. The gas laws; vapors, steam-engine, and boiler; and internal combustion engines are also deliberated in this text. This volume is valuable to engineering students, as well as researchers conducting work on applied mechanics.
