I am looking for a book with solutions manual on classical physics, specifically focusing on Lagrange and Hamiltonian exercises with thorough explanations. I appreciate any recommendations, and I have already been suggested to check out "goldstein classical mechanics" for a more advanced understanding. Thank you to sambrisrtol for the helpful suggestion.

for a start. If you want the gold standard search "goldstein classical mechanics" but it is not for beginners - I have been reading it for 30 years and still find it provides new insights

Classical mechanics is a branch of physics that deals with the motion of macroscopic objects and the forces acting on them. It includes the study of Newton's Laws of Motion, conservation of energy, and the concept of momentum.

Classical mechanics is important because it provides the foundation for understanding the physical world around us. It is used to describe the motion of everyday objects, from a ball rolling down a hill to the orbit of planets around the sun. It also serves as the basis for more advanced branches of physics, such as quantum mechanics and relativity.

Some popular exercise books for classical mechanics include "Introduction to Classical Mechanics" by David Morin, "Classical Mechanics" by John R. Taylor, and "Classical Mechanics: Point Particles and Relativity" by Walter Greiner. These books offer a variety of practice problems and solutions to help improve understanding and problem-solving skills.

While a solid understanding of basic math concepts such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus is necessary to fully grasp classical mechanics, many introductory textbooks and exercise books provide a review of these topics. With dedication and practice, anyone can learn classical mechanics regardless of their math background.

Classical mechanics has many practical applications in everyday life. It can be used to design structures such as bridges and buildings, predict the trajectory of objects in sports like golf and baseball, and understand the mechanics of machines and vehicles. It also plays a crucial role in fields such as engineering, astronomy, and medicine.
