Intended for a one-semester undergraduate course, this textbook uses numerous figures, derivations, and practical examples to explain the essential topics of the field. Chapters concentrate on issues like vectors, rectilinear motion, oscillations, general motion, noninertial reference systems, gravitation, planar motion, and Lagrangian mechanics. Fowles and Cassiday (both: University of Utah) explain fundamental concepts in terms of specific cases, and integrate an historical perspective throughout.
