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.

A set of lecture notes for an lower-division classical mechanics course. Covered are one- and three-dimensional motion, Newton's laws, energy and momentum conservation, rotational motion, statics, planetary motion, oscillations, and wave motion.

This is a calculus-based book meant for the first semester of the type of freshman survey course taken by engineering and physical science majors. A little relativity is interspersed with the Newtonian mechanics, in optional sections.

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.
