Classical Mechanics II

Classical Mechanics is Physics I the way that Newton envisioned. It requires a solid understanding of the math courses up through Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. The most important topic in this course is the Hamiltonian. 

The prerequisites for this course are: Differential Equations, and Classical Mechanics I

This course is a co- or prerequisite for: Quantum Mechanics I
