In this work a new dynamics is developed, which is valid for all observers, and which establishes, among other things, the existence of a new universal force of interaction, called kinetic force, which balances the remaining forces acting on a body. In this new dynamics, the motion of a body is not determined by the forces acting on it; instead, the body itself determines its own motion, since as a result of such motion it exerts over all other bodies the kinetic force which is necessary to keep the system of forces acting on each of them always in equilibrium.
It is known that in classical mechanics Newton's dynamics cannot be formulated for all reference frames, since it does not conserve its form when passing from one reference frame to another. For instance, if we admit that Newton's dynamics is valid for a chosen reference frame, then we cannot admit it to be valid for a reference frame which is accelerated relative to the first one, for the description of the behavior of a body from the accelerated reference frame differs from the description given by Newton's dynamics. Classical mechanics solves this difficulty by separating reference frames into two classes: inertial reference frames, for which Newton's dynamics applies, and non-inertial reference frames, where Newton's dynamics does not apply; but this solution contradicts the principle of general relativity, which states: the laws of physics shall be valid for all reference frames.

3. Classical Mechanics
A short discussion of the development of classical or Newtonian mechanics during the European Enlightenment and its origins in the Aristotelean tradition. This essay is part of the Enlightenment
Ancient Greece Pre-Socratic Philosophy: Pythagoras The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy is that the universe is founded on number and mathematics; this idea, however, was commonplace among the hermeticists (hermeticism is a Western tradition of magic which believes that the universe reflects the mind of god) and dates back to Pythagoras.
Ancient Greece Aristotle Pre-Socratic Philosophy: Atomists inertia : every object in motion stays in motion until redirected or stopped by another object; every object remains at rest until moved by another object. No object has the ability to move or stop itself. The universe, then, becomes a vast billiard ball table, in which everything moves because something else has just knocked into it. But that leads to a problem: who moved the first object? How did it get going if no object can move itself? The Greek atomists, who believed that the universe consisted of atoms (in Greek the word atoma means "indivisibles") which created all phenomenon by colliding into and combining with each other, explained this with the concept of "swerve": somewhere at the beginning of time, one atom swerved all by itself and knocked into another and hence the universe came into being. Aristotle , on the other hand, who also based his thought more or less on a mechanistic view of the universe, solved the problem by positing an "Unmoved Mover": somewhere at the beginning of time, an "Unmoved Mover" (which he calls God), was able to set things in motion without having to be moved itself. This idea was appropriated in the Middle Ages by the Scholastics, who, like Aristotle, believed the universe functioned in a rational and mechanistic way and was set in motion and ruled over by a rational and unmoving mover, God. Newton adopts this idea whole-cloth: although the universe is a vast machine of objects moving and colliding into each other, still it requires some original thing that set it all in motion in the first place. That thing, for Newton, was God.

I will use links throughout this on line textbook to let you jump to new topics. I assume that since you have arrived at this page you are somewhat familiar with navigating around web sites so I will not spend more time on that subject. If you need additional help, use the Help menu item on your browser. Some of the images you find scattered around this page are screen shots from the lessons that follow. Others evidently are not. Just pause your cursor over any image to see a description. Those of us who write online material including Java applets, and those of you who need to run those applets are caught in the crossfire of the Java war. Microsoft tried to take over the Java virtual machine business a few years ago and failed. Sun Microsystems, the original Java company, won that battle and Microsoft is giving up, abandoning their Java technology and their support for Java. All new computers will now be shipped with the Sun Java runtime environment(JRE). That means that when websites are updated, the authors must make a choice about whether or not to move up to the modern Java language, not constrained by the limitations of the Microsoft virtual machine. At M. Casco we have decided to move on, since the move will be have to be made sooner or later. Consequently if you have a computer shipped before 2004, you will probably need to

Classical mechanics
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Classical mechanics is the physics of forces , acting upon bodies. It is often referred to as " Newtonian mechanics " after Newton and his laws of motion . Classical mechanics is subdivided into statics (which deals with objects at rest) and dynamics (which deals with objects in motion). See also mechanics Classical mechanics produces very accurate results within the domain of everyday experience. It is superseded by relativistic mechanics for systems moving at large velocities near the speed of light, quantum mechanics for systems at small distance scales, and relativistic quantum field theory for systems with both properties. Nevertheless, classical mechanics is still very useful, because (i) it is much simpler and easier to apply than these other theories, and (ii) it has a very large range of approximate validity. Classical mechanics can be used to describe the motion of human-sized objects (such as tops and baseballs ), many astronomical objects (such as planets and galaxies ), and even certain microscopic objects (such as organic

9. Free Body Diagram / Kinetic Diagram
A short introduction to and description of free body diagrams which are essential for the understanding of classical mechanics.
The Free Body Diagram / Kinetic Diagram
Engineers make a big deal out of the correct use of free body diagrams for solving mechanics problems. In what follows we restrict our attention to particle mechanics. For statics problems the sum of the external forces on a particle is zero and so the free body diagram just shows the particle being considered with all it's external forces acting on it. However, for a dynamics problem, the sum of the external forces is equal to the mass of the particle times it's acceleration (i.e. Newton's second law) and kinematics now play an important role. In order to emphasize the importance of the kinematics in a dynamics problem it is esential to draw both the free body diagram and the kinetic diagram (so-called by Hibbeler) for every problem regardless of the problem's difficulty . Although it may be possible to solve simple problems by inspection, only by seeing numerous examples of how both free body diagrams and kinetic diagrams are constructed, will the student have the confidence to tackle much harder problems. The combination of a free body diagram and a kinetic diagram is just a pictoral representation of Newton's second law What I mean by a pictoral representation of Newton's second law, which for a particle is of course

We study the classical properties of a supersymmetric system which is often used as a model for supersymmetric quantum mechanics. It is found that the classical dynamics of the bosonic as well as the fermionic degrees of freedom is fully described by a socalled quasiclassical solution. We also comment on the importance of this quasiclassical solution in the semiclassical treatment of the supersymmetric quantum model.

Welcome to the course page for Physics 231, Classical Mechanics. The goal of this course is for you to develop problem-solving skills and apply these skills to real-world situations. If your not careful, you will learn a lot of physics too! There will be three lectures (MTW) and one demonstration and problem-solving session (Th) each week. This course is the first junior-level course in the major sequence. It will describe and develop modern methods and techniques used in solving classical mechanics problems. Topics to be covered include the following: A review of Newtonian mechanics, a development of Lagrange's method, applications of Lagrange's method to one- and two-dimensional motion, central forces, collisions, oscillations, accelerated coordinate systems and geometrical phases, and rigid-body rotations. Familiarity with the topics covered in Introduction to Mathematical Methods (PHYS-150) is assumed, in particular, I expect everyone to understand how to use MATHEMATICA.

    PSYCHE, 2(5), May 1995 KEYWORDS: consciousness, mind/brain, physics, and quantum theory. ABSTRACT: It is argued on the basis of certain mathematical characteristics that classical mechanics is not constitutionally suited to accommodate consciousness, whereas quantum mechanics is. These mathematical characteristics pertain to the nature of the information represented in the state of the brain, and the way this information enters into the dynamics.
    1. Introduction
    1.1 Classical mechanics arose from the banishment of consciousness from our conception of the physical universe. Hence it should not be surprising to find that the readmission of consciousness requires going beyond that theory. 1.2 The exclusion of consciousness from the material universe was a hallmark of science for over two centuries. However, the shift, in the 1920's, from classical mechanics to quantum mechanics marked a break with that long tradition: it appeared that the only coherent way to incorporate quantum phenomena into the existing science was to admit also the human observer (Stapp, 1972). Although the orthodox approach of Bohr and the Copenhagen school was epistemological rather than ontological, focusing upon "our knowledge" rather than on any effort to introduce consciousness directly into the dynamics, other thinkers such as John von Neumann (1955), Norbert Weiner (1932), and J.B.S. Haldane (1934) were quick to point out that the quantum mechanical aspects of nature seemed tailor-made for bringing consciousness back into our conception of matter.
