the mechanics are a subsection of physics and are concerned with the movement of bodies and the effect of forces.

Basic Law of the mechanics became from Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642) and Isaac Newton (1643 - 1727) develops.In 19. One accepted century that all physical features have their origin in mechanical procedures. Therefore this range is often also called today the “classical mechanics” or “Newton's mechanics”. It is physics itself moving objects thatand describes everyday kind for example the free case of objects, planetary motions or movements of rigid bodies (z. B. Gyroscope).

One knows today that in many areas of physics own regularities exist and the mechanics in the formulation of Newton onlyan approximation represents, the z. B. for relativistic systems to be adapted must. The mechanics with its terms, like mass and Kraft , nevertheless remain a basis of physics and above all all technical applications.
