“Classical mechanics is the branch of physics that deals with the study of the motion of anything
(roughly speaking) larger than an atom or a molecule. That is a lot of territory, and the methods
and concepts of classical mechanics are at the foundation of any branch of science or engineering
that is concerned with the motion of anything from a star to an amoeba—fluids, rocks, animals,
planets, and any and all kinds of machines. Moreover, even though the accurate description of
processes at the atomic level requires the (formally very different) methods of quantum mechanics,
at least three of the basic concepts of classical mechanics that we are going to study this semester,
namely, momentum, energy, and angular momentum, carry over into quantum mechanics as well,
with the last two playing, in fact, an essential role…”
