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?

8 SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT 1960: “Systeme International” (SI) Standard SI units in mechanics: Second (s) : 9,192,631,770 cycles of microwave radiation from the cesium-133 atom Meter (m) : distance traveled by light in vacuum in 1/299,792,458 second Kilogram (kg): mass of the special metallic cylinder kept in France Radian?
9 Derived Quantities Derived units Equations Example x = cos(π/3) (angle in radians) Example: x = 2t 2 – 3t + 4 (x in m, t in s) Example: x = 2cos(4t) (x in m, t in s)
