By Daniel Kleppner,Robert J. Kolenkow

within the years because it was once first released, this vintage introductory textbook has confirmed itself as one of many best-known and such a lot extremely popular descriptions of Newtonian mechanics. meant for undergraduate scholars with origin abilities in arithmetic and a deep curiosity in physics, it systematically lays out the foundations of mechanics: vectors, Newton's legislation, momentum, strength, rotational movement, angular momentum and noninertial platforms, and comprises chapters on valuable strength movement, the harmonic oscillator, and relativity. quite a few labored examples display how the rules could be utilized to a variety of actual events, and greater than six hundred figures illustrate equipment for impending actual difficulties. The publication additionally comprises over 2 hundred tough difficulties to aid the scholar advance a powerful realizing of the topic.
