Description

This well- received and authoritative text has been revised with the objective to increase the coverage and to aid the students in their efforts at self-study by including solved examples at the end of the chapters. The presentation is lucid adn direct, adn the pedagogy followed in the book would help the students to have a firm grip on the basic concepts in mechanics. Although the book is largely based on Newtonian formulation, a separate chapter on Lagarangian adn Hamiltonian formulations has been added in this edition. In addition, two new chapters on Mechanics of Continuous Media and Charged Particle Dynamics make the book more useful. About 90 additional solved examples and another 90 unsolved problems give ample opportunity to the students for practice. Key features Concepts illustrated with examples Large number of practice problems and review questions.
