Course Objectives: A detailed exposition of classical mechanics for the students, opting for physics is vitally important for a clear
understanding of recent intricate theories of quantum mechanics, Modern Physics and research to build a well developed and
conceptualized foundation.
Pre-requisites:
Student Learning Outcomes: After learning this course, the students will be able to demonstrate knowledge of techniques of tackling
problems in classical mechanics and provides a recent intricate theories of quantum mechanics, modern physics at an advanced level,
which is also apply for research work in future.
