    Application of classical mechanics Before I am talking about the application that involves classical mechanics, let figure out what is the classical mechanics and what does it mean? And why it is important in our life? How does it involve in our life? And where it takes place when we need it? First, let me introduce the classical mechanics. Classical mechanics basically can be considered as a study of the motion of objects. When we are talking about physics, there must be a person we have to talk

    Classical and Quantum mechanics are the two main fields of mechanics in physics. Classical mechanics came a few hundred years before Quantum mechanics. Subsequently it is less accurate and less reliable then the more recent mechanic field of Quantum mechanics. Despite being outdated, Classical mechanics can still be used for many everyday problems with bigger and slower moving objects. However, when dealing with extremely fast moving or small subatomic particles a Classical approach will not produce

    moving with speeds comparable to the speed of light $v \sim c$ ($c$ is speed of light). Quantum mechanics is the theory describing the motion of microscopic particles. If we want to explain the behavior of microscopic particles moving with very high velocities (or high energies comparable to their rest mass energy) we need a theory which encapsulates both; the principles of relativity and quantum mechanics. So we need a quantum mechanical theory consistent with relativity. \par \section{Why Quantum

    and gravity. The term “Classical physics” is used to describe physics before 1900 A.D. and after 1600 A.D. In classical physics matter and energy became two different things that made up the universe. Matter is anything that occupies space and has mass and must exist in either of these forms: solid, liquid, gas, or plasma while energy does not need space and exists in various forms including: magnetic energy, thermal energy, electric energy, and kinetic energy.

    Unification

    • 3 Pages

    Unification is the struggle to devise the one and only theory that will unify all the forces of the universe. It is the attempt to combine the equations of the force of gravity, the force of electro-magnetism, the weak force, and the strong force all into one equation. Physicists, believing that everything in the universe is not separate, want to unite all the forces together. The process of unification takes a lot of hard work and determination. Some physicists believe that uniting everything into

    Thermodynamics is defined as “the study of heat transfer and its relationship to doing work.” Specifically, it is a field of physics that has to do with “the transfer of energy from one place to another or from one form to another” (Drake P.1). Heat acts as a form of energy that equates to a total amount of work. Heat was recognized as a form of energy around the year 1798. Count Rumford (Sir Benjamin Thompson), a British military engineer, observed that “numerous amounts of heat could be generated

    molecular vibrations which further, can be introduced by considering the elementary dynamical principles. The solution for the problem of small oscillations can be found out classically, as it is much easier to find its solution in classical mechanics than that in quantum mechanics. One of the most powerful tools to simplify the treatment of molecular vibrations is by use of symmetry coordinates. Symmetry coordinates are the linear combination of internal coordinates and will be discussed later in detail

    Explaining Laws in Special Relativity Wesley Salmon has suggested that the two leading views of scientific explanation, the “bottom-up” view and the “top-down” view, describe distinct types of explanation. In this paper, I focus on theoretical explanations in physics, i.e., explanations of physical laws. Using explanations of E=mc2, I argue that the distinction between bottom-up explanations (BUEs) and top-down explanations (BUEs) is best understood as a manifestation of a deeper distinction

    with the same amount of force against each of the tires(reaction). As the action and reaction pair together the bike accelerates in a constant motion. But how can these laws successfully pertain to this device? Did Sir Isaac Newton know about the mechanics of this device as well as others? Everyone has a riddles about how Sir Isaac Newton constructed these accurate and useful experimental laws. In 1686, Sir Isaac Newton presented three laws of motion in the "Principia Mathematica Philosophiae

Newton owned more books on humanistic learnings than on mathematical and science; all of his life he studied them deeply. He published another book about "Classical Scholia", explantory notes intended for use in a future edition of the Principia reveal his knowledge of pre-Socratic philosophy; he recored with the Bible, considered the prime authority on the early history of
