Introduction To Classical Mechanics

v4.0.0 / TOC (14 chapters) / 01 jul 18 / greg goebel

* In the 17th century, the English polymath Isaac Newton established a pioneering system to describe the fundamental physical interactions of the material Universe. His system has since been extended and refined into what is now known as "classical mechanics". This document is a short introduction to basic concepts and definitions in classical mechanics, with an emphasis on simple practical applications of physical principles. It assumes no mathematics beyond elementary algebra and geometry; metric measurements are used.
