    Hey guys,

    I'm a first year aerospace engineering student.
    We've been doing Mechanics 1 this semester and I don't understand a single thing in it..

    I've tried using the Meriam & Kraige (7th Edition) dynamics book to help me out. However, as there are no worked solutions to the questions I dont know where I go wrong?

    Does anyone know of a place from which I could get (lots of) model questions and answers so that I maybe able to practice??

    Also, I think there's a thing called an instructors manual for the Meriam & Kraige book. If anyone has a link to it could you be kind enough to share it?

    Thanks!

    Maybe this book (generally very well regarded by engineers)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Engineering-...dp/1137031204/
    Or
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Advanced-Eng...dp/0230275486/

    Check your library for copies...

    Appreciate the reply! Thanks.

    But I'm looking for help with regards to Mechanics not Maths.
    I do use those books for my Math modules and they are top notch!

    You have tried seeing if there are any decent Youtube videos that might help? A good mechanics channel is called "Structure Free" or something along that lines.
