Mathcad: A Tool for Engineering Problem Solving explains how to use Mathcad 7 (Student and Standard), which is the latest release of the most popular calculation software in the world. It is intended as a supplementary textbook for use in introductory engineering courses but will also, especially in later chapters, be of interest to more advanced students and to practicing engineers. The book has a practical orientation, with many real-world engineering examples used to illustrate the power of Mathcad in solving problems. There are separate chapters on Mathcad fundamentals, graphing data, integration and differentiation (both numeric and symbolic), solving one or more algebraic equations (including non-linear), linear algebra, solving ordinary differential equations (first order or higher, as well as sets of equations), and statistics. In addition, in a final chapter some more advanced features such as Laplace transforms and complex analysis are introduced to show Mathcad's computational power, and Mathcad's integration with World Wide Web is described. There are a large number of exercises throughout the book, with answers provided for many.
