This chapter reviews the basic principles of dynamics. Newton’s laws are the foundation of mechanics and dynamics and deal with the behavior of particles subjected to forces. Section 3.1 presents Newton’s three laws and the principle of work and energy. Section 3.2 introduces the concept of conservative forces that play a fundamental role in dynamics. The principle of conservation of energy is discussed in section 3.2.1.
