Theoretical Mechanics for Sixth Forms, Volume 2 deals with mathematics as a double subject for sixth-form pupils. This book is a continuation of the revised edition of the course in Theoretical Mechanics.
This volume discusses the principle of virtual work, stability of equilibrium, vector algebra, and the motion of bodies with variable mass-subjects that can help the student prepare for the freshman year in a university or in one of the polytechnic schools. Compared to the earlier edition, this volume discusses in more detail topics such as the motion of a particle in two dimensions and systems of coplanar forces. This book also emphasizes vector algebra and its many applications, explaining the concept of a vector, the Cartesian coordinates and components, the definitions of vectors and scalars, and vector applications to kinetics. This text also contains exercise problems with answers.
This volume can be used for sixth-form students in the U.K. and is also suitable for third year students of a sixth form course as preparation for further studies.
