6 PH 1013 Classical Mechanics (Vector algebra) The laws of motion of macroscopic solid objects (speed is small compare to the speed of light) (Archimedes, Newton 18 th century)
7 Base Quantities in Mechanics time, length, mass (Time is what keeps everything from happening at once.) (Length is what keeps everything from being at the same point.) (Mass is what puzzles people of all times) Angle?

### What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
