This textbook is intended for engineering and applied engineering undergraduate students of subjects such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, architecture, construction engineering, construction management, etc. It is also suitable for applied science students who are pursuing a two-year degree with or without the intention to transfer to four-year-degree programs. The cutting-edge statics theory required for engineering has been described using plain text, appropriate equations, figures and worked out examples. Examples are mostly taken from the real world and are solved using step-by-step explanations. The authors believe that this text will be helpful for engineering, applied engineering and applied science students to understand and apply statics to succeed in their degree programs and careers.
