 Thornton, Stephen T., author.
 Fifth edition / Stephen T. Thornton, Jerry B. Marion.  Boston, MA : Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning, [2008], ©2008.
 Description
 Book — xvi, 656 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm.
 Summary

This classical mechanics text provides a complete account of the classical mechanics of particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies. The authors make extensive use of vector calculus to explore topics. Coverage also includes the Lagrangian formulation of mechanics. Modern notation and terminology are used throughout in support of the text's objective: to facilitate the transition to the quantum theory of physics.
