Pages 17: There should not be a y before the integral sign in Eq2.9.
Pages 27, 113, 122: Unfortunately, due to an error in the
translation process, the acceleration equation is reproduced wrongly on
each of these three pages. Eqs 3.18, 13.7 and 14.2 should each have a
minus sign on the right-hand side, after the equality.
Page 82: In the fifth line of Problem 9.1, the `-5' should be in the
Page 96: There should be a `simeq' sign (tilde on top of line,
indicating approximate equality) before the fraction with the
Page 120: The formula given in Problem 13.3 differs slightly from
the version given as Equation 11.12; ideally they would have matched.
The latter is more accurate, but for the purposes of the Problem the
numerical difference is irrelevant.
Page 134: The raised index on the second `T' should be an alpha, not an a.
Page 191: In the answer to Problem 10.2, the units at the end of the
first line should be kg m-3.
Page 192: The answer to Eq12.2 should be given as Y4 =
