Classical Mechanics is the study of large-scale physical phenomena. We will study the laws of motion formulated by Sir Isaac Newton and expand on them to discuss space and time, particle dynamics, work and potential energy, momentum, rigid bodies and rotational dynamics, as well as introducing concepts in Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
