# What r the 2 divisions in mechanics?

• JOL
In summary, the two main divisions in mechanics are Statics and Dynamics, with the possibility of including Strength of Materials or Kinematics as well. The specific divisions may vary depending on the approach taken in teaching and learning mechanics.

What r the 2 divisions in mechanics?

i don,t know how you are saying particularly 2 divisions in mechanics, search google you will get more.

Typically there are Statics and Stength of Materials. However, Dynamics may also be considered part of Mechanics.

CS

One of them is Dynamics and I am not able to figure out the second one

Often engineering mechanics is divided into Statics and Dynamics.

You can also divide it in "kinematics" and "dynamics".

All that depends on the angle of attack a particular pedagogy wants to take.

Thanks for the replies.

## 1. What are the two divisions in mechanics?

The two divisions in mechanics are classical mechanics and quantum mechanics. Classical mechanics deals with the study of macroscopic objects and their motion, while quantum mechanics deals with the study of microscopic objects and their behavior.

## 2. What is the main difference between classical mechanics and quantum mechanics?

The main difference between classical mechanics and quantum mechanics is the scale at which they operate. Classical mechanics applies to everyday objects and their observable behaviors, while quantum mechanics applies to particles at the atomic and subatomic level and their non-intuitive behaviors.

## 3. How are classical mechanics and quantum mechanics related?

Classical mechanics is considered to be the foundation of quantum mechanics. The principles and equations of classical mechanics are used as a basis for understanding the behavior of particles in quantum mechanics.

## 4. What are some examples of phenomena that fall under classical mechanics?

Examples of phenomena that fall under classical mechanics include the movement of objects on Earth, such as a ball rolling down a hill, the motion of planets in our solar system, and the behavior of fluids, such as water flowing through a pipe.

## 5. What are some examples of phenomena that fall under quantum mechanics?

Examples of phenomena that fall under quantum mechanics include the behavior of electrons in an atom, the concept of superposition where particles can exist in multiple states at the same time, and the phenomenon of entanglement where particles can become connected and affect each other's behavior even at a distance.
