Similar Classes? (Statics and Classical Mechanics)

  1. Jun 11, 2010 #1
    I'm leafing through "Engineering Mechanics - Statics" by Hibbeler, and it seems almost entirely a review of my Physics I class that was on Classical Mechanics.

    How is a class dedicated to Statics or Dynamics (both of which I will have to take) different from my classical mechanics class? It just seems to give more difficult examples and problems for the same concepts...

    That is it exactly. Statics and dynamics cover the same material as freshman physics with a little more detail and more applications.
