These notes cover classical mechanics and special relativity. You will learn new techniques that will allow you to attack a wider set of problems than you saw in the introductory sequences as well as provide you a deeper understanding of physics.
Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.
