#### Description

What is Statics in Engineering Mechanics?

Statics is a branch of Engineering Mechanics that deals with the effects of external forces acting on a body at rest.

How this course will help me in my study and career?

The subject Engineering Mechanics is one of the core subjects in the field of engineering and technology. This subject improves your analytical skills and thinking power. That is why Engineering Mechanics is considered a core subject for engineering students at all universities worldwide.

This course will teach you how the bodies react if you apply certain forces at certain points of the body. At the end of the course, you will be able to draw out the important information from the descriptive real-world problems and perform mathematical modeling and calculation to obtain the solution. This is what you call a problem-solving ability. Also, you will be able to apply the concepts in other areas of engineering applications. In other words, you will be able to utilize the skills and knowledge gained from this course in advanced-level subjects like Strength of Materials, Machine Design, Design of Structures, and so on. Even after the successful completion of your Engineering Degree, this subject will be the base for your day-to-day engineering activities.

#### What will you learn from this course?

In this course, you will learn

• Basic Concepts of Engineering Mechanics
• Equilibrium of Particles and Rigid Bodies
• Supports, Reactions, Beams, and Loads
• Centre of Gravity, Moment of Inertia, and moreâ€¦

What is the benefit of taking this course?

My major objective is to teach you the concepts such that you must be able to easily understand and get enough confidence to solve any problem related to Mechanics. So, I put myself in your shoes and carefully designed and presented this course. I am sure that you will be able to grasp the concepts by spending less time compared to other courses. I always strive to improve the quality of the course by getting feedback from students like you.

This course will help you in understanding various subjects like Fluid Mechanics, Dynamics of Machinery, Aircraft Structures, Structural Analysis, and so on.

#### How to gain maximum benefit from the course?

My best suggestion is to â€¦

• sit in a calm and quiet place with a notebook, pen, and scientific calculator and start learning the modules according to your convenient time.
• note down the important points and solve the numerical examples parallel to the lectures.
• complete the quizzes and assignments/exercises provided in the course.
• try to answer your university/institute questions related to the concepts you learned here to get confidence.

#### Should I require any books for the course?

No. You donâ€™t require any books. The course has been designed by referring to the following books (Author names are in alphabetical order) and you may also refer to these books:

• Vector Mechanics for Engineers â€“ Beer and Johnston
