It is keyed heavily to the accompanying Statics text and works through many of the sample problems in detail. While this supplement suggests ways in which to use Mathcad to enhance your understanding of statics and teach you efficient computational skills, you may also browse through the Mathcad Student manual and think of your own usage of Mathcad to solve statics problems and applications in other courses. The manual consists of 11 chapters. The first chapter is a general introduction to Mathcad that concludes with a sample application of Mathcad to a statics problem and can be studied while reading Chapter 1 of the accompanying Statics text. The following 10 chapters present appropriate Mathcad solutions for some of the sample problems given in the text. Chapter 1 - Using Mathcad Computational Software Numerical Calculation Working with Functions Symbolic Calculations Solving Algebraic Equations Graphs and Plots Application of Mathcad to a Statics Problem Along with solutions to sample problems, other topics covered within this manual include: Mathcad as a Vector Calculator- Solution of Simultaneous Linear Equations- Using Mathcad for Other Matrix Calculations- Scalar of Dot Product- Vector or Cross Product Between Two Vectors- Parametric Solutions- Solution of Nonlinear Algebraic Equations- Vector or Cross Product Between Two Vectors- Numerical and Symbolic Integration- Three-Dimensional Scatter Plots- Symbolic Generation of Equilibrium Equations- Discontinuity Functions- Cables- Wedges- Belt Friction- Principle Second Moments of Area- Eigenvalue Problems
