Motion and Mass: First Steps into Physics
by Roy McWeeny
Publisher: Learning Development Institute 2011
Number of pages: 107
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.

The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its applications.

The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body. Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation are also included.
