'Fundamentals of Engineering Mechanics' makes complicated mechanics calculations easy!
This course includes video and text explanations of everything in a first year engineering mechanics module. It includes more than 60 worked through examples with easy-to-understand explanations. 'Fundamentals of Engineering Mechanics' covers five sections:
Rigid Body Equilibrium.
Centroids and Inertia.
Internal Forces in Structural Members.
These are the five fundamental chapters in the study of engineering mechanics.
We start from the beginning... First I teach the theory. Then I do an example problem. I explain the problem, the steps I take and why I take them and how to simplify the answer when you get it.
