The book is meant for the students, both graduate and postgraduate, to understand the
application of various formulations of classical mechanics and equip them for solving
mechanical problems. Theory notes are given at the beginning of each chapter.
This book contains problems of various difficulty levels. Most of the problems are discussed
in detail for understanding of the applications of various formulations. Certain number of
problems are discussed in all formulations which will help the students to make a
comparison between different formulations. A large number of problems are selected from
various university examinations as well as from competitive examinations like NET, JEST,
GATE and Civil Services. Practice problems are also given at the end of each chapter.
Consequently, this book will also be helpful to the students preparing for such
