Aims of the course:
After finishing of the course students will be able to orientate in basic problems of classical Newtonian mechanics. They will be able to statistically process the results from physical measurements, mathematically work out basic exercises from kinematics and dynamics, and will understand the terms like the coordinate vector, velocity vector, acceleration vector, power, work, energy.
