Abstract

In Chapter 3 the motion of a point in two dimensions was discussed without any consideration being given to the means by which this motion was produced. The next two chapters introduce ‘Newtonian mechanics’ i.e. a study of the physical world as governed by Newton’s Laws of Motion, formulated by Isaac Newton in the seventeenth century.
