It should be noted that most of the problems, chosen for this collection, are not only an illustration of the theoretical material, but are well in accord with the materials which serve as a bridge between theoretical mechanics and intermediate sciences.

We now come to another Problem Book in Physics this one is exclusively for theoretical mechanics: Collection of Problems in Theoretical Mechanics by I. V. Meshchersky.

The present edition embraces all basic principles of theoretical

mechanics usually taught during the first two years of studies in

higher and secondary technical schools. The material in this book is presented consistently, i, e., proceeding from the particular to the general. The same method is applied to the order of paragraphs and the arrangement of the text.…

It should be noted that most of the problems, chosen for this

collection, are not only an illustration of the theoretical material, but are well in accord with the materials which serve as a bridge between theoretical mechanics and intermediate sciences.The primary objective of the book was to present to the reader

problems of practical value by giving the examples in such fields as the operation of machines and mechanisms, hydrodynamics, resistance of materials, and other branches of science and engineering. All this has made the book widely popular among the Soviet students of technical schools.…

The material collected in this book will aid students in the

practical application of laws and methods of theoretical mechanics in their engineering practice.

The book was translated from the Russian by N. M. Sinelnikova and edited by A. I. Lurie and the supplementary material: *Solutions of Some Typical Problems* is written by V. I. Kuznetsov. The other contributors to this edition are S. A. Sorokov (statics), N. N. Naugolnaya and A. S. Kelson (kinematics), A. S. Kelson (dynamics of a particle), M. I. Baty (dynamics of a system), G. J. Djanelidze (analytical statics, dynamics of bodies having variable masses, stability of motion). The book is an abridged version of the 28th edition of the book by Meshchersky published in 1962. This book was published by *Higher School Publishing House* in the 1968 (as per worldcat record, no date in the book). Dover also published this book in 1965.

Thanks for your continued efforts, I’m a student preparing for IITJEE and once i came to your blog and started loving it. I faced a problem of not able to collect good books to prepare and once i saw this wah i was stunned. I still thought many were like me as there are no authentic blogs for all preparation material. So i started my own blog to help others like me https://devilexams.wordpress.com

I’ve started posting books and I’ve also posted this book , I’ve given proper credits and have given a link back to this page!

There are some non Mir books which are good so i’ve started posting even them.

Kudos keep your efforts! Thanks for helping many like me !
