Engineering Physics for Gearheads

  1. Apr 3, 2015 #1
    Bentley Publishing was kind enough to send PF a copy of https://www.amazon.com/Physics-Gearheads-Introduction-Dynamics-Motorsports/dp/0837616158.

    This is a textbook literally geared towards the automotive engineer and car enthusiast.

    The text is extremely well laid out with colorful chapter subheadings, key concepts, formula highlights and plenty of diagrams. The level of the text would be appropriate for early engineering undergrads however an advanced high school student could easily go through the book. Advanced engineers could also use this as a very handy reference for vehicle dynamics.

    Chapters
    1. A Warm-Up Lap
    2. Kinematics Basics
    3. Kinematics Applications
    4. Dynamics Basics
    5. Forces
    6. Dynamics Applications
    7. Torque, Force Resolution, and 2-D Vectors
    8. Angular Dynamics Basics
    9. Angular Dynamics Applications
    10. Dynamics in a Plane Basics
    11. Dynamics in a Plane Applications
    12. Energy Basics
    13. Energy Applications

    Thanks to Physics Forums for having my book in your contest! I'd be glad to field any questions about what's different about it, what it covers, etc.
