For Statics courses.

A proven approach to conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills
Engineering Mechanics: Statics excels in providing a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics. Engineering Mechanics empowers students to succeed by drawing upon Professor Hibbeler’s decades of everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn. The text is shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers in the teaching profession, as well as many of the author’s students.

A variety of new video types are available for the 15th Edition. The author carefully developed each video to expertly demonstrate how to solve problems, model the best way to reach a solution, and give students extra opportunities to practice honing their problem-solving skills; he also summarizes key concepts discussed in the text, supported by additional figures, animations, and photos. The text provides a large variety of problems, 30% of which are new, with varying levels of difficulty that cover a broad range of engineering disciplines and stress practical, realistic situations. An expanded Answer Section in the back of the book now includes additional information related to the solution of select Fundamental and Review Problems in order to offer students even more guidance in solving the problems.

Also available with Mastering Engineering with Pearson eText
Mastering® empowers you to personalize learning and reach every student. This flexible digital platform allows you to integrate unique, automatically graded homework and practice problems with exercises from the textbook. With interactive, self-paced tutorials and many end-of-section problems that provide individualized coaching, students become active participants in their learning, leading to better results. The Mastering gradebook lets you easily track the performance of your entire class on an assignment-by-assignment basis, or the detailed work of an individual student. Learn more about Mastering Engineering.

Pearson eText is an easy-to-use digital textbook available within Mastering that lets students read, highlight, and take notes, all in one place. If you’re not using Mastering, students can purchase Pearson eText on their own or you can assign it as a course to schedule readings, view student usage analytics, and share your own notes with students.
