# Mechanics

Mechanics is one of the main branches of physics which deals with the study and behavior of physical bodies when subjected to different types of forces or displacement, and the subsequent effect of bodies on the environment.

## Types of mechanics

There are two main types of mechanics:

- Classical mechanics
- Quantum mechanics

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

### Types of classical mechanics

Classical mechanics further divided into three types which are:

- Kinematics
- Statics
- Dynamics

Mechanics is divided into further given chapters please click the following links to study the required chapters or topics .you can get basic, easy and advance concepts from physicsabout.com
