Interactive Math

Below are a few examples of interactive math included with both the 27th and 28th editions of Machinery's Handbook CD and from Guide to Machinery's Handbook. The Guide is included on the Handbook CD, however, activating the Guide requires a separate purchase. As of last counting, the current collection includes more than 500 interactive math solutions.

These examples are intended to be generally representative of the style of solutions available using the Machinery's Handbook CD.

How to use the Interactive Math

The interactive mathematics in Machinery's Handbook uses your web browser to display and interact with equations. A free LiveMathTM web browser plug-in is required.  If it is not already installed, the plug-in should automatically start to load and install itself the first time you try one of the equations. Just follow the on- screen instructions. If the plug-in doesn't seem to be loading, or if you have trouble installing it, you can download it from the LiveMath web site, Plug-in versions for both Internet Explorer and Netscape are available.
