Elements of Theoretical Mechanics
by Alexander Ziwet
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1904
Number of pages: 517
The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a safe and sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its more simple applications.

From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
General mechanics introductory text for physics and engineering students with a background in calculus. Contents: Newton's Laws: First principles; Rotational Dynamics; Newton's Laws: A second look; Harmonic Oscillators; etc.
