Free online Mechanics Textbook


This is an open-source introduction to Classical Mechanics, by Emeritus Professor Michael Cohen, 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 due to time pressures. The text contains numerous solved Examples. The author would appreciate receiving suggestions, questions, comments and criticisms. Accompanying the text is a Manual of Solutions (not just answers) to all of the end-of-chapter problems, by Professor Larry Gladney.
