Text: Introduction to Classical Mechanics by Atam Arya, 2nd. ed.
This course is a continuation of Intermediate Mechanics (PY330) and will cover the dynamics of rigid bodies, friction, noninertial reference frames, integral transforms, Hamiltonian dynamics, continuum mechanics, and relativity.
Attendance: Attendance at class follows the College's 25% rule. You are strongly encouraged to attend all lectures since helpful, time-saving hints not to be found in the text will be presented. Each student is responsible for the material discussed in class and the announcements made in class. Absence from class does not relieve one from this responsibility. Attendance at all reviews is mandatory.
Homework: The homework problems will come from the text and supplementary sources. Some of the assigned problems will be solely the work of an individual student and will be honor pledged. The rest of the assigned problems may be worked with the help of other students.
Grades: There will be two reviews. Grades will be comprised of the following contributions:
