Description

'Introduction to Engineering Mechanics' makes complicated mechanics calculations easy!

This course includes video and text explanations of everything in engineering mechanics, and it includes more than 60 worked through examples with easy-to-understand explanations. 'Introduction to Engineering Mechanics' is organized into five sections:

  1. Particle Equilibrium.
  2. Rigid Body Equilibrium.
  3. Structural Analysis.
  4. Centroids and Inertia.
  5. Internal Forces in Structural Members.

These are the five fundamental chapters in the study of engineering mechanics.

And here’s what you get inside of every lesson:

Videos: Watch over my shoulder as I solve problems for every single mechanics issue you’ll encounter in class. 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, how to work through the yucky, fuzzy middle parts, and how to simplify the answer when you get it.

Notes: The notes section of each theory lesson is where you find the most important things to remember. The notes include tips and tricks on how to study as well as how to save time in tests and exams. Ultimately, I cover everything you need to know to pass your class and nothing you don’t.

One-On-One Assistance: You can ask me for mechanics help in the Q&A section any time, any day whether it's related to the video content or another problem you're struggling with at home. Either way, I'm here to help you pass and do the best you possibly can!

Who is the target audience?
  • First year engineering students.
  • Any university, college or high school student enrolled in a mechanics course.
  • Anyone with an interest in engineering mechanics.
