by William Fogg Osgood - The MacMillan Company
The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body. Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation are also included.
by Oliver Clarence Lester - Ginn and company
The matter presented is intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.
by Arthur Morley - Longmans
The aim of this book is to provide a suitable course in the principles of Mechanics for engineering students. More prominence than usual has been given to such parts of the subject as energy, work of forces and torques, power, and graphical statics.
by Michael Cohen - University of Pennsylvania
This is an introduction to Classical Mechanics, which many students may find useful as a supplementary resource. Cohen emphasizes basic concepts, such as force and permissible frames of reference, which frequently are dealt with hastily.
