How to use the book. read the chapters and do drill problems as you read• examine the case studies - these pull together concepts from previous chapters• problems at the ends of chapters are provided for further practiceTools that should be used include,• graphing calculator that can solve differential equations, such as a TI-85• computer algebra software that can solve differential equations, such as ScilabSupplemental materials at the end of this book include,• a writing guide• a summary of math topics important for engineers• a table of generally useful engineering units• properties of common materialsAcknowledgement to,Dr. Hal Larson for reviewing the calculus and numerical methods chaptersDr. Wendy Reffeor for reviewing the translation chapterStudent backgrounda basic circuits coursea basic statics and mechanics of materials coursemath up to differential equationsa general knowledge of physicscomputer programming, preferably in ’C’Special notes- despite all common wisdom, inertia is presented as a force, this makes it easierfor students attempting to learn, and keep sign conventions correctTO BE DONEsmallitalicize variables and important termsfix equation numbering (auto-numbering?)fix subscripts and superscriptsfix problem forms to include therefores, mark FBDs, etc.check C programs for ANSI compliancebigverify the phase angle relationships cos vs/ sin.
