A proven approach to conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills

Engineering Mechanics: Statics excels in providing a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics. Engineering Mechanics empowers students to succeed by drawing upon Prof. Hibbeler’s everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn. The text is shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers in the teaching profession, as well as many of the author’s students.


The 14th Edition features Preliminary Problems to help students develop conceptual understanding and build problem-solving skills. The text also provides a large variety of problems with varying levels of difficulty that cover a broad range of engineering disciplines and stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice.


Mastering™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools developed to engage students and emulate the office-hour experience, Mastering personalizes learning and often improves results for each student. Tutorial exercises and author-created tutorial videos walk students through how to solve a problem, consistent with the author’s voice and approach from the book.
