**Description**:

This is a textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies and applications of dynamics. The main emphasis of the book is on particle and rigid-body dynamics, although some other aspects of the subject have been included to show how the methods of classical mechanics are applied to the various branches of engineering science.
