This text is aimed at students beginning an undergraduate course in any of the branches of engineering where an understanding of engineering mechanics is an essential element. It looks at the subject in its entirety treating statics and dynamics as fully integrated, with statics seen as a special subset of dynamics where Newton's equations of motion are set equal to zero due to equilibrium considerations.
