Welcome to the Wikiversity Advanced Classical Mechanics Learning Project, part of the School of Physics.
Project description[edit | edit source]
This Wikiversity project is for development of learning resources concerned with finding and solving the equations of motion of a system with constraints. These resources help students learn electrodynamics and general relativity, and they are also provided with a powerful (but not so easy) route to quantum mechanics.
