Engineering Mechanics is one of the core courses that all engineering students must take. This course continues the study of Engineering Mechanics Statics with step-by-step problems.

In this course, we begin by working with forces directed along a line. We define the line as a vector, and in doing this we can define force vectors of any magnitude and pointed in any direction.

We then introduce the concept of the dot product in mechanics. We review the dot product and how to calculate it along with a discussion of why it is important in engineering. Next, we solve dot product problems that allow us to find the components of a vector force in any direction desired.

Finally, we discuss 2D and 3D particle equilibrium. We present the vector equations along with the scalar form of the equations, and solve numerous equilibrium problems where we must calculate the forces acting at a point.

This material is fundamental to Engineering Mechanics. The skills that the student builds while working with vectors will greatly make the follow-on material much easier to master.

The easiest way to learn this material is through step-by-step video lessons!

  How are the MathTutorDVD Tutorial's different?

The answer is simple. Most instruction involves a lengthy discussion of the theory before instructing the student in how to solve problems.

In the vast majority of the cases the student quickly gets bored and frustrated by the time he or she starts to solve the problems. This course, in contrast, teaches all of the concepts by working fully worked problems step-by-step, which is a much more engaging way to learn.

  Exceptional value and affordability!

MathTutorDVD believes in providing value for our customers. All MathTutor DVD Tutorials cover between 3 and 14 hours of lectures, and considering the cost, each MathTutor DVD set therefore costs LESS than additional private tuition, and you may rewatch the lessons as many times as needed to master the material!

  What is our teaching style like?

All topics on this DVD are taught by working example problems. There are no traditional lectures of background material that won't help you solve problems and improve your skills. We believe in teaching-by-doing and that is what you will receive by watching this DVD.

Undetermined coefficients is explained, for example, by working many problems in step-by-step detail. We begin with the easier problems and work our way up to the harder problems.

The student immediately gains confidence, does not get bored, and quickly feels like he or she can conquer the material. This method is extremely powerful and has proven itself time and again. Perhaps most importantly, problem solving skills are honed early on that will help with homework and taking exams even after watching the very first lesson.
