An Introduction to Mechanics – Daniel Kleppner, Robert Kolenkow – 2nd Edition

For 40 years, Kleppner and Kolenkow’s classic text has introduced to the of mechanics. Now brought up to date, this revised and improved second is ideal for classical mechanics courses for - and second-year undergraduates with foundation skills in mathematics.

The book retains all the features of the first edition, including numerous worked examples, challenging problems and extensive illustrations, and has been restructured to improve the flow of ideas. It now features new examples taken from recent developments, such as laser slowing of atoms, exoplanets and black holes; a ‘Hints, Clues and Answers’ section for the end-of-chapter problems to support learning; and a solutions manual for instructors.
