Engineering Mechanics – R. S. Khurmi – 1st Edition


Engineering Mechanics” is a must-buy for all students of engineering as it is a lucidly written textbook on the subject with crisp conceptual explanations aided with simple to understand examples.

Important concepts such as Moments and their applications, Inertia, Motion (Laws, Harmony and Connected Bodies), Kinetics of Motion of Rotation as well as Work, Power and Energy are explained with ease for the learner to really grasp the subject in its entirety.

A book which has seen, foreseen and incorporated changes in the subject for 50 years, it continues to be one of the most sought after texts by the students.

Key Features:
– 36 chapters evenly explain all major theories of the subject.
– Close to 1200 figures and examples aid to the concepts explained.
– More than 750 in-text exercise questions and chapter-end questions for practice
