Classical Mechanics: a Critical Introduction
by Michael Cohen
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania 2012
Number of pages: 364
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.
