Written in the same spirit and with the same vivid style as The Mechanical Universe: Introduction to Mechanics and Heat, this textbook is aimed at undergraduate students of physics and engineering. Thus the authors go into certain questions more deeply, are more concerned in describing the scientific development and consider more fully the verification, implication and justification of the ideas discussed than in the lower level book. Many more specific examples are given and each chapter ends with a problem set (a teacher's manual will be available). The mathematical tools are of course more fully developed, as befits a calculus-based course in classical mechanics.Thus the authors go into certain questions more deeply, are more concerned in describing the scientific development and consider more fully the verification, implication and justification of the ideas discussed than in the lower level book.
