Dynamics is the study of the motion of particles and bodies. In describing particles and bodies, the criterion of relative size determines whether a given object is considered a particle or a body. For example, in astronomical calculations, the Earth may be considered as a particle because its dimensions are negligible compared to the size of its path.
