An introduction into the concepts and methods of scientific inquiry illustrated using elements of classical mechanics complemented with laboratory experiments. Topics include translational and rotational motions of particles and rigid bodies, analyzed using simple algebra-based Newtonian kinematics, dynamics and statics, and conservation of energy and momentum.
