General description This course will provide the fundamental basis of mechanics, in particular, classical mechanics.
Mechanics is the branch of the Physics focused on the study of the behaviour of bodies at rest or moving bodies.
During the course of Physics I, the basis of classical mechanics will be studied, which will be extended in the next year in the course of Classical Mechanics.
Both basics of the kinematics and the dynamics will be addressed in this Physics I.
The kinematics is devoted to study the movement of the bodies, without considering the causes of that movement. That is, the kinematics gives answer to the question of How does a body move?. On the other hand, the dynamics is devoted to study the causes of the movement of the bodies and its evolution. That is, the dynamics, unlike the kinematics, gives answer to the question Why is this body moving?
This course is fundamental since the principles of the phenomena related with the behaviour of the bodies (at rest or moving bodies) are based on this course.
