Mathematics: Mechanics and Probability

Front Cover
Nelson Thornes, 1984 - Mathematics - 658 pages
Dealing with mechanics and the solving of mechanical problems with the help of pure mathematics, this A-Level text introduces at an early stage an appreciation of the properties of vectors. Throughout the book problems are solved using vector methods where appropriate, and many worked examples are provided to illustrate each main development of a topic. A set of straightforward problems follows each section, and a selection of more challenging questions appears in the miscellaneous exercises at the end of most chapters, with multiple-choice questions on most topics.
