  Classical mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, classical mechanics is one of the two major sub-fields of study in the science of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of bodies and aggregates of bodies.
While the terms classical mechanics and Newtonian mechanics are usually considered equivalent, the conventional content of classical mechanics was created in the 19th century and differs considerably (particularly in its use of analytical mathematics) from the work of Newton.
Classical mechanics is used to describe the motion of macroscopic objects, from projectiles to parts of machinery, as well as astronomical objects, such as spacecraft, planets, stars, and galaxies, and even microscopic objects such as large molecules.

In physics, classical mechanics is one of the two major sub-fields of study in the science of mechanics, which is concerned with the motions of bodies, and the forces that cause them.
However, the emergence of classical mechanics was a decisive stage in the development of science, in the modern sense of the term.
The initial stage in the development of classical mechanics is often referred to as Newtonian mechanics, and is characterized by the mathematical methods invented by Newton himself, in parallel with Leibniz, and others.

Classical mechanics is subdivided into statics (which deals with objects in equilibrium) and dynamics (which deals with objects in motion).
Although classical mechanics is roughly compatible with other "classical" theories such as classical electrodynamics and thermodynamics, there are inconsistencies that were discovered in the late 19th century that can only be resolved by more modern physics.
When combined with classical thermodynamics, classical mechanics leads to the Gibbs paradox in which entropy is not a well-defined quantity and to the ultraviolet catastrophe in which a flbody is predicted to emit infinite amounts of energy.

 Newtonian mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Newtonian mechanics is the original version of the physical discipline of mechanics, due to Sir Isaac Newton, who developed the theory over a period from about 1664, until the publication of his great work, known as the Principia, in 1687.
While Newton chose to present the work in classical geometric form, for acceptance, much of the foregoing development of the theory was actually based on his invention of the calculus of infinitesimals, as a new discipline of mathematics.
Isaac Newton's mathematical studies led him to the development of the Newtonian Kinematics, which involve the movement of objects due to its moved distance, initial and final velocities, acceleration, and elapsed time.

The Principia - Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy by Isaac Newton is the definitive account of Newtonian mechanics.
Newtonian Mechanics, or classical mechanics, considers the movement, or resistance to movement, of objects subject to forces known to Newton.
Newtonian Mechanics assumes that bodies move through absolute space, in an absolute time, with an absolute motion and to absolute positions.

 2. Some Basic Ideas about Quantum Mechanics
Until the closing decades of the last century the physical world, as studied by experiment, could be explained according to the principles of classical (or Newtonian) mechanics: the physics of everyday life.
Neither of these theories provide an easy intuitive picture of the world, since they contradict the predictions of familiar Newtonian Mechanics in the regimes for which they were developed.
The information concerning environment is in the form of the potential which would be experienced by the particle according to classical mechanics (if you are unfamiliar with the classical concept of potential an explanation is available).

 AN INTRODUCTION TO NEWTONIAN MECHANICS (p.2)
After creation of two such simulations for experiments in mechanics I have concluded that they may work best as a support for a Web course of introductory mechanics.
In this course I try to emphasize an experimental base of the Newtonian mechanics and its relations with mathematics as only known method capable of quantitative descriptions the nature laws.
Thus, this course is not intended for people who want to memorize a bit of physics to pass some standard tests and forget about it, but for these who want truly understand Newtonian mechanics.

I worked through French's challenging problem sets in Newtonian Mechanics while I was in the military and found out that I could "do physics." I immediately returned to school to earn my physics degree.
The book is well-motivated and gives a lot in return but asks a lot of the student in his or her maturity and perseverence.
This 1st edition (743 pages) was published in 1971 and is the most appropriate one to use for a more leisurely course that covers both mechanics and some history of mechanics.

The key caveat is that modes with wavelengths longer than a box size are excluded in systems with periodic boundaries because they cancel themselves.

 Newtonian Mechanics #1
Pendulum clocks--always kept upright--use gravity, but mechanical wristwatches depend on a balance wheel, turning periodically back and forth--clockwise, then counter-clockwise, then clockwise again--against a spiral spring.
Modern electronic wristwatches replace the wheel with a vibrating quartz crystal, acting somewhat like a tuning fork: the motion is much faster, but transistor circuits can easily count the vibrations, which are very stable.
By slightly turning the handlebars right or left, you impart some of the rotation of the front wheel ("angular momentum") to rotate the bike around its long axis, the direction in which it rolls.

I wanted the basic mechanics to drive all of these unanswered questions, and simultaneously throw the proverbial grenade amongst the academic community.
And I truly believed as I embarked on this difficult passage, the only moral authority open to me was the universe itself.
