# Mechanics

Mechanics for physics is the branch of physics that deals with the study of the motion of objects, its causes and effects. Basically there are three types and branches of mechanics, classical mechanics, and quantum mechanics.

Classical mechanics deals with the study of macroscopic objects while classical mechanics deals with the study of microscopic objects.

Kinematics, statics, and dynamics are further types of classical mechanics.

Kinematics is the branch of mechanics that deals with the study of the motion of objects without discussing its cause.

Dynamics is the study of the motion of objects, and its causes and effects are called dynamics.

In mechanics we will learn in detail about the following topics:
