Mar 21, Erica Nabena rated it liked it Shelves: Mechanics was one of the first if not fowled first courses I followed in University. The problems at the end of each chapter are quite challenging and interesting.

In my opinion there could have been more of those. Apr 20, John Calvin rated it really liked it. This was my Mechanics Text book for Physics last semester, I really enjoyed the class, anapytical the book is well written, and contains a wealth of information about the physical world. If you are curious about how the macroscopic world works, this is a great book to get a formal introduction to the concepts anaoytical physics that underlie the modern world in which we live.

Author is too verbose on irrelevant ramblings and too reticent on the derivations and explanations of important results. This is very cssidy for an upper-division classical mechanics class where engineering is stronger then mathematics. I have read more mathematically disciplined books. Yet if the desire is to fowls the material and get an ability to solve more real life problems this one would be better then others.
Apr 16, Tony Perez rated it really liked it Recommends it for: We used this book in my junior-level classical mechanics course. My initial impression is that it is a great introduction to mechanics for students who have studied calculus-based physics at the freshman level.
Analytical Mechanics by Grant R. Fowles
It provides a decent amount of mathematical rigor without being too overwhelming. The minimum background necessary for an adequate understanding of the material is multivariable calculus. It’s helpful if you’ve had a semester of ODE, linear algebra, and complex analysis, but it’s not cruci We used this book in my junior-level classical mechanics course.
It’s helpful if you’ve had a semester of ODE, linear algebra, and complex analysis, but it’s not crucial since the book contains several appendices that help with the extra, specific maths needed. I personally hadn’t taken linear algebra or complex analysis when I took this course. Every chapter begins anaytical a thoughtful quote to prime your brain juices with insightful questions and conceptual descriptions, and whenever possible, each chapter provides a historical context of the physics to be analyzed.
For those who like me enjoy more than just the physics itself, you’ll appreciate these little nuggets bt wisdom scattered throughout the text. They were a joy to read. Every chapter ends with section of problems, which itself is further divided into two subsections: The problems ranged in difficulty from both ends of the spectrum with no indicator of how challenging it is intended to be.
Overall, they are helpful exercises needed to mschanics the physics learned from reading the chapter. Unfortunately, only a small selection of problems from each chapter has a solution in the back of the the book.
The actual meat aka the physics of each chapter is usually presented in a relatively straightforward manner. In general, the sections begin with derivations and explanations followed by examples. This pattern is followed throughout the entirety of the text.
Several chapters also contain sections dealing with numerical problem solving with Mathematica. The only downside Analyticwl found was that it sometimes feels like it does too much of the teaching through examples.
What I mean is that for a lot of equations it only gowles you how to apply them in very specific example scenarios. But what do I know? Maybe this is the best pedagogical approach to teaching undergraduate level mechanics. My final take on this book is that it provides a good, gentle introduction into the world of classical mechanics beyond the freshman level. It is not too dumbed down considering the relatively low level of math it demands; yet it does not try to fowpes beyond what a typical undergraduate student is capable of.
I would recommend this book as an introductory text for classical mechanics. Sep 09, Cera rated it it was amazing.
