Newtonian and Einstinian Mechanics for avito

Hello avito, since you have started so many threads about these subjects you must have some measure of interest in them.

However your understanding is suffering from mixing them up together.

The standard route to Newtonian Mechanics is by the three laws N1, N2 and N3.

These are used because the provide definitions of Force and Mass in immediately usable formulae that enabled the industrial revolution.

Einstinain mechanics is then added or tacked on afterwards.


It is actually possible to study them together and in some ways this is quite sensible as it avoids the need to define forces or masses, along with the apparent conflicts between the two models.

Such a route starts by recognising the activity of a point particle in space and putting the laws in terms of this. However simple differential calculus is needed.

If you are interested we can explore this route and save you much technical angst.

Lets go for it.

What you said went above my head but let us begin our work we can then expand on our knowledge. Will try to think over on your idea. A 9 hour shift is tiring so let me get time for reflection.

However.

As you mentioned it needs differential equations. I am a bit out of touch with differential equations but i will learn that easily with the help of khan academy. This website is truly revolutionary and their motto "You can learn anything" made me explore the field of physics.

The way differential equations are taught here is so revolutionary that even an eighth grader can learn differential equations.

Misread.

I misread differential calculus to be differential equations which means we can go ahead right away as i am master in differential calculus.
