Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics is a comprehensive book for undergraduate mechanical engineers. The book discusses basic statics, applying the principles of vectors to it. It discusses the usage of free body diagrams to understand the effects of forces on a body and shows how bodies at rest behave under forces. It presents a large collection of problems for students to apply the concepts and helps them test their comprehension level. The book is an indispensable resource for all students preparing for the GATE examination.
