Advanced Classical Mechanics
Subject classification: this is a physics resource. |
Welcome to the Wikiversity Advanced Classical Mechanics Learning Project, part of the School of Physics.
Project descriptionEdit
This Wikiversity project is for development of learning resources concerned with finding and solving the equations of motion of a system with constraints. These resources help students learn electrodynamics and general relativity, and they are also provided with a powerful (but not so easy) route to quantum mechanics.
