Wanna learn mechanics

  • #1
At present whatever mechanics I know is attributed to PHYSICS - Halliday Reskick Krane
i.e kinematics, centre of mass , work energy theorem and rotational mechanics

So I want to go on !
So What I want to know is which book will be best for that, and whatever you tell please mind that I will be doing self learning.

Also let me know the corresponding mathematical prerequisites ,
as of now as far as calculus goes
I know differentiation , first two principals of integral calculus , first order differential equations

Kleppner and Kolenkow, An Introduction to Mechanics, is the way to go.

something more advance !!

making into Euler's and Lagrange's stuff
but from basics

Are you sure you know what Kleppner's book does? Sure, it might appear that they cover the same as Halliday's book. But Kleppner-Kolenkow is very different and way more mature than Halliday. While Halliday often uses some baby calculus, Kleppner uses the full power of calculus every step of the way. Seriously, I think every physics student should work through Kleppner before moving on to Lagrangian stuff.

But ok, if you want more advanced stuff: https://www.amazon.com/dp/189138922X/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

First, "wanna" isn't even slang. It's baby talk. I don't know why people expect to be treated seriously if they write in baby talk.

Second, you got some very good advice with Kleppner. I don't understand the desire to whip through the material as quickly as possible, ensuring that one learns as little as possible.
