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 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
