The Integrals of Mechanics
by Oliver Clarence Lester
Publisher: Ginn and company 1909
Number of pages: 78
The matter presented in the following pages was originally intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, together with the great number of illustrative examples, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.

This is an introduction to Classical Mechanics, which many students may find useful as a supplementary resource. Cohen emphasizes basic concepts, such as force and permissible frames of reference, which frequently are dealt with hastily.

Contents: Linear Motion; Energy and Angular Momentum; The Principle of Least Action; Central Forces; Rotating Frames; Conservative Systems; Many-Particle Systems; Rigid Bodies; Continuum Mechanics; Small Oscillations and Perturbed Motion; etc.
by Isaac Todhunter - Macmillan and co
The work forms an elementary treatise on demonstrative mechanics. The author provides an introduction to the study of applied as well as of theoretical Mechanics. Great care was taken to assume the smallest possible knowledge of pure mathematics.

From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
