A strong background in calculus preferably including multivariable is important. I just saw the movie, Gravity.
The book retains all the features of the first edition, including numerous worked examples, challenging problems and extensive illustrations, and has been restructured to improve the flow of ideas. Apart from the clear illustrations of important concepts by diagrams, there are step-by-step derivations of the most important equations encountered in the book.

Numerous worked examples demonstrate how the principles can be applied to a wide range of physical situations, and more than figures illustrate methods for approaching physical problems. With this book, you can figure out what is what. However, some explanations do require basic differentiation and intagration, and because there is no need for clever arguments to get to the point they tend to be more easy to follow.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. What a great book. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. See all 61 reviews. Great practice problems and examples in every single chapter, very wide verity of problems. Gravity the movie got some science right, and a lot of it wrong.
Another issue I’ve heard about is that mechanucs though the exercises are excellent, no solutions or answers manual is published, so it can be difficult to figure out whether your result is correct.
