Problem solving in physics is not simply a test of understanding, but an integral part of learning. This book contains complete stepbystep solutions for all exercise problems in Essential Classical Mechanics, with succinct chapterbychapter summaries of key concepts and formulas. The degree of difficulty with problems varies from quite simple to very challenging; but none too easy, as all problems in physics demand some subtlety of intuition. The emphasis of the book is not so much in acquainting students with various problemsolving techniques as in suggesting ways of thinking. For undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those involved in teaching classical mechanics, this book can be used as a supplementary text or as an independent study aid.
