## Classical Mechanics

In physics, **classical mechanics** is one of the two major sub-fields of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws describing the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The study of the motion of bodies is an ancient one, making classical mechanics one of the oldest and largest subjects in science, engineering and technology.

### Famous quotes containing the words mechanics and/or classical:

“It is only the impossible that is possible for God. He has given over the possible to the *mechanics* of matter and the autonomy of his creatures.”

—Simone Weil (1909–1943)

“*Classical* art, in a word, stands for form; romantic art for content. The romantic artist expects people to ask, What has he got to say? The *classical* artist expects them to ask, How does he say it?”

—R.G. (Robin George)
