"Mechanics of Machines" covers the analysis and design of machines and mechanisms, including simple linkages, gears, gear trains, and cams. Written in a clear, concise format, the test covers mechanics of rigid bodies, graphical and analytical analysis of planar mechanisms, gears and gear trains, and cams. It concludes with chapters on graphical force analysis of planar mechanisms, analytical force analysis and balancing of planar mechanisms, flywheels, and synthesis of mechanisms. Five easy-to-use appendixes at the end aid in navigation and review of the text.
