This text is a modern vector-oriented treatment of classical dynamics and its application to engineering problems. Based on Ginsberg's Advanced Engineering Dynamics, 2nd edition, it develops a broad spectrum of kinematical concepts, which provide the framework for formulations of kinetics principles following the Newton-Euler and analytical approaches. This fresh treatment features many expanded and new derivations, with an emphasis on both breadth and depth and a focus on making the subject accessible to individuals from a broad range of backgrounds. Numerous examples implement a consistent pedagogical structure. Many new homework problems were added and their variety increased.
