Mechanics is the science that studies the motion of objects and can be divided into the following: 1.Kinematics: Describes how objects move in terms of space and time.2.Dynamics: Describes the cause of the object’s motion.3.Statics: Deals with the conditions under which an object subjected to various forces is in equilibrium. This chapter is considered with kinematics which answers many questions such as: How long it takes for an apple to reach the ground when it falls from a tree? What is the maximum height reached by a baseball when thrown into air? What is the distance it takes an airplane to take off?
