As pointed out by another reviewer, what you see is not what you get. The cover is different (it's a blue color). If you already have the blue book, this is not a different problem set from that one. This book fails to include units on the intermediate steps in solutions. Unit conversions are a source of error for a lot of students, so this laziness on their part is noteworthy. This text uses BG units in about half of the problems (in some sections, even more). Let's get real for a second: if you're an engineer, you're working in SI whenever possible. BG units are cumbersome and, if BG units are truly necessary, it's easier to convert back to the desired units at the end. I agree that it's important to know the conversions, but there is no benefit gained by students when they waste time on this outdated system. The focus of this class is to learn basic fluid mechanics, not conversions. If the units were primarily SI (maybe 75% of the problems or so), I would rate this text much...
i purchased this book to study for my PE...it does have tons and tons of resolved problems...but it is true, there is no explanation behind it, i know the formulas and i can understand where the procedure came from but the numbers do not make sense: example 1.9 - a rock is 0.00015m3. if the rock's specific gravity is 2.60, what is its weight? solution does this: (2.60)(9.79)=25.5 kN/m3 W-(25.5)(0.00015)=3.82N no clue where the 9.79 came from...gravity is 9.81 m/s2... i can only assume they used 9.79 as gravity but then on problem 1.11, they do use 9.81...CONFUSING.
