Elementary Dynamics: a textbook for engineers
by Joseph Whittington Landon

Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1920
ISBN/ASIN: B0041OTGJC
Number of pages: 268

Description:
In the following pages an attempt has been made to present the principles of elementary dynamics, and to explain the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible. By continually having to think of the principle and the physical quantities involved, the student gradually acquires the true meaning of them, and they become real to him.
