The book is adapted to the needs of a first course in Mechanics, given for sophomores, and culminating in a thorough study of the dynamics of a rigid body in two dimensions. So important are Hamilton's Equations and their solution by means of Jacobi's Equation, that this subject has also been included.

From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.

The matter presented is intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.

The present volume is intended as a brief introduction to mechanics for junior and senior students in colleges and universities. No knowledge of differential equations is presupposed, the treatment of the occurring equations being fully explained.
by P.F. Smith, W.R. Longley - Ginn & Co.
The study of Mechanics as presented in this volume is founded upon a course in mathematics extending through the Calculus. It is assumed, moreover, that the student has already become familiar with the fundamental ideas of force, energy, and work.
