An Introduction to Mechanics by Daniel Kleppner. In the years since it was first published danie by McGraw-Hill, this classic introductory textbook has established itself as one of the best-known and most highly regarded descriptions of Newtonian mechanics. Intended for undergraduate students with foundation skills in mathematics and a deep interest in physics, it systematically lays out the principles of mechanics: Numerous worked klfppner demonstrate how the principles can be applied to a wide range of physical situations, and more than figures illustrate methods for approaching physical problems.
The book also contains over challenging problems to help the student develop a strong understanding of the subject. Password-protected solutions are available for instructors at www. Hardcoverpages. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I just saw the movie, Gravity. They took some liberties with physics in order to move the plot along and I’m not going to post any spoilers here.
However, I gotta recommend the appendix at the end of this book about satellite orbits and the minimum energy path to boost a satellite into nearly circular orbit. There are newer editions, but I have the old first edition. Classical mechanics doesn’t change much. Gravity the movie got some science right, and a lot of it wrong. With this book, you can figure out what is what.
But suspend disbelief and enjoy the am anyway.

Nov 27, Arta rated it it was amazing Shelves: Such A great book for mechanic. I also Recommend Arya the books for mechanics for mechanical Lessons or physics. This is a college-level, book covering the principles of basic classical and relativistic mechanics.
Well wirtten and organized, the explanations are quite clear and easy to understand. It begins with the most fundamental aspects, such as Newton’s Laws of Motion and gradualy builds up to more complicated fenomena. Most theorical notions are explained in two or three different ways that require d This is a college-level, book covering the principles of basic classical and relativistic mechanics.
Most theorical notions are explained in two or three different ways that require different mathematical knowledge, because of that, and the existence of an introductory chapter on mathematics, it shouldn’t be too difficult to understand even with only high-school mathematics.
However, some explanations do require basic differentiation and intagration, and because there is no need for clever arguments to get to the point they tend to be more easy to follow. Together with the theorical text there is a plethora of examples each describing a new aspect of said theory, and these are really well chosen and carried out, the only deficiency robsrt that the sometimes the reader too is informed on the objective at the end.
An Introduction to Mechanics
The notations used is quite clear and leaves very few to interpretation. Also there are several exercises at the end of each chapter with varying degrees of difficulty, having the only major flaw in the book, these do not come with solutions, only a handfull of them have a complete solution.
Another good aspect is the philosofical discussion present, teaching too critical reasoning and to try to see hidden consequences of some theories. Overall it is a great book to begin learning physics.
