**Classical Mechanics**

**Publisher**: Wikibooks 2012

**Description**:

Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with Newton's laws and with basic physics concepts such as mass, moments of inertia, length, force and time. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.
