■ ADJECTIVE

classical

For the purpose of discussion we shall consider a conservative force in classical mechanics and we shall work in space only.

Moreover, the specific Newtonian scheme has given rise to a remarkable body of mathematical ideas known as classical mechanics .

First let us establish how the geodesic equation simplifies when the motion can be described approximately by classical mechanics .

The rays of geometrical optics are not unlike the particle trajectories of classical mechanics .

This again shows how the metric connections correspond to the inertial accelerations and forces of classical mechanics .

fluid

This depends primarily on the branch of fluid mechanics being studied.

The first, conservation of mass, is known in fluid mechanics as the continuity equation.

It embraces fluid mechanics and viscous flow as well as elasticity and shows the relations between these formerly separate fields of physics.

newtonian

According to Newtonian mechanics the orbital decay for an isolated binary consisting of compact stars is expected to be immeasurably small.

This theory is now subsumed by Newtonian mechanics .

Instead of the clarity and precision of Newtonian mechanics , we have to be content with a more fuzzy account of affairs.

But then, Newtonian mechanics appeared precisely accurate, until Relativity was discovered.

The relation of the one continuum to the other is not possible using Newtonian mechanics .

Tidal stress and gravitational asymmetries had pulled the sphere out of shape. Newtonian mechanics had done the rest.

Now if we wish to use Newtonian mechanics we must relate velocity and acceleration to the same particle.

Calculations using Newtonian mechanics predict a precession of 532 arcsec per century.

car

In most big cities advertisements for workers, from plumbers to car mechanics , go unanswered for weeks.

He showed it to a car mechanic , who kept it five weeks without looking at it.

Amelia began to feel better-the essay she wrote on car mechanics , a course requirement, won first prize.

continuum

This subject is broadly termed continuum mechanics and is an academic discipline in its own right.

In large-strain elasticity and in continuum mechanics the stress-strain law is non-linear and W is no longer a quadratic function of the strains.

There is in fact a great need for research in this area of the applicability of continuum mechanics .

The continuum mechanics approach Continuum mechanics is a more general theory than elasticity theory.

At the beginning of the century it was believed that everything could be understood in terms of continuum mechanics .

garage

Women rarely want to become garage mechanics .

quantum

It seems that the weight of the evidence is in favour of quantum mechanics and against local reality.

In fact, according to the rules of quantum mechanics , what is happening is even more mysterious than that!

In such strong fields the effects of quantum mechanics should be important.

We have learnt that, according to quantum mechanics , even a single particle must behave like a wave all by itself.

This paucity of information arises from the role that uncertainty has in quantum mechanics .

It is a striking feature of quantum mechanics , however, that for identical particles the rules are different.

We are now able to understand why our information about the states of motion is so restricted in quantum mechanics .

To understand quantum mechanics , we must come to terms with complex-number weightings.

■ VERB

work
