Elementary Particle Dynamics

  • Oliver M. O’Reilly


Here, we cover the basics on kinematics and kinetics of particles and discuss three ubiquitous examples. We conclude with a discussion of Euler’s first law (Newton’s second law, or the balance of linear momentum). Much of the material in this chapter will subsequently be repeated.
