Give the definition of classical mechanics.

Classical mechanics is that branch of Physics which deals with the description as we will as explanation of the motion of point like as we will as extended, rigid as we will as deformable objects embedded in a three dimensional Euclidean space. The part of mechanics which deals only with the geometrical description of the motion, such as Galileo’s laws of falling bodies, or Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, is called kinematics. The part which offers casual explanation of the motion along with it is description, such as the application of Newton’s laws of motion, Newton’s laws of gravitation, etc , is called dynamics.
