'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:

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.

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.
