The study of Mechanics as presented in this volume is founded upon a course in mathematics extending through the Calculus. It is assumed, moreover, that the student has already become familiar with the fundamental ideas of force, energy, and work through such preliminary courses as are included in textbooks on General Physics.

The book presents many practical problems together with brief definitions and solutions of typical problems which should help the student to follow this advice: ''Learn for yourself, think for yourself, make yourself master of principles''.
by Eric L. Michelsen - UCSD
The purpose is to develop an accurate physical, conceptual, geometric, and pictorial understanding of important mechanics topics, from basic principles through Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, including rotation, oscillations, and more.

The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body. Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation are also included.
