Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems – Stephen T. Thornton, Jerry B. Marion – 5th Edition


This best-selling classical mechanics text, written for the advanced undergraduate one- or two-semester course, provides a complete account of the classical mechanics of particles, of particles, and rigid bodies. is used extensively to explore topics.The Lagrangian formulation of mechanics is introduced early to show its powerful problem solving ability.

Modern and are used throughout in support of the text’s objective: to facilitate students’ transition to advanced physics and the mathematical formalism needed for the of physics. CLASSICAL OF PARTICLES AND can easily be used for a one- or two-semester course, depending on the instructor’s choice of topics.
