PC1431 Lecture 5 6 Newton’s Laws of Motion Describes the relationship between the motion of a body (kinematics) and the mass and forces acting on it. Classical mechanics deals only with objects: large compared with atomic dimensions (>>10 -10 m), but <<10 10 m (cf. dark matter in galaxies) move at speeds v << c .
