Sunday, November 28, 2010 by: Pawan Kumar Goyal

This book has detailed hints for chapter end tutorial problems to help the readers to attempt all the problems.
Key Features:

Expanded coverage of the chapter on Friction with the inclusion of several examples and additional detailing of the topic in various other chapter too. Chapter on Central force motion covering trajectories, launching of a satellite, astronomical facts, etc. Presents separate chapters and detailed treatment on Dynamics of particles, Kinematics of rigid bodies, Dynamics of rigid bodies as different from the previous edition wherein it was covered all together in a chapter. Incorporates a large number of engineering-oriented solved examples (251), unsolved problems (341), concept review questions (111), and multiple-choice questions (96). Includes description of 15 laboratory experiments as reference.
