Motion and Mass: First Steps into Physics
by Roy McWeeny
Publisher: Learning Development Institute 2011
Number of pages: 107
From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.

The study of Mechanics as presented in this volume is founded upon a course in mathematics extending through the Calculus. It is assumed, moreover, that the student has already become familiar with the fundamental ideas of force, energy, and work.
by Fred B. Seely - J. Wiley & sons
This book presents those principles of mechanics that are believed to be essential for the student of engineering. Throughout the book the aim has been to make the principles of mechanics stand out clearly ; to build them up from common experience.

The matter presented is intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.
by Alexander Ziwet - The Macmillan Company
The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its applications.
