Type of subject
On successful completion of this course the student should know basic principles of classical mechanics related to Newton’s principles and the law of gravitation with application to simple physical systems, including rigid bodies and fluids. The student should grasp importance of relativistic mechanics. He should also be able to apply theoretical mechanics to solve the problems in nature.
Understanding questions of classical mechanics and ability to solve practical problems proposed during the lectures and exercises.
