# Classical Mechanics: From Newton to Einstein: A Modern Introduction

Classical Mechanics provides a clear introduction to the subject, combining a user-friendly style with an authoritative approach, whilst requiring minimal prerequisite mathematics - only elementary calculus and simple vectors are presumed. The text starts with a careful look at Newton's Laws, before applying them in one dimension to oscillations and collisions. More advanced applications - including gravitational orbits, rigid body dynamics and mechanics in rotating frames – are deferred until after the limitations of Newton's inertial frames have been highlighted through an exposition of Einstein's Special Relativity.

- Comprehensive yet concise introduction to classical mechanics and relativity.
- Emphasize real life examples.
- Includes many interesting problems and a key revision notes chapter.
- Presented in a style that assumes a minimum of mathematical knowledge.
- Contains new chapter on computational dynamics.
- Unique mixture of classical mechanics with relativity.
- Supplementary web link and solutions manual.

**Keywords:** General & Introductory Physics, classical mechanics, Einstein, Einstein special relativity, physicists, Newton, Newton?s laws, engineering, fluid mechanics
