Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know three mechanics: first, classical mechanics > Classical mechanics describes the motion of macroscopic objects, from projectiles to parts of machinery, as well as astronomical objects, such as spacecraft, planets, stars, and galaxies. Besides this, many specializations within the subject deal with gases, liquids, solids, and other specific subtopics. Classical mechanics provides extremely accurate results as long as the domain of study is restricted to large objects and the speeds involved do not approach the speed of light. Second > refers to mechanics compatible with special relativity (SR) and general relativity (GR). It provides a nonquantum mechanical description of a system of particles, or of a fluid, in cases where the velocities of moving objects are comparable to the speed of light c. As a result  classical mechanics is extended correctly to particles traveling at high velocities and energies, and provides a consistent inclusion of electromagnetism with the mechanics of particles. This was not possible in Galilean relativity, where particles and light can travel at any speed, even faster than light which has never been observed. The foundations of relativistic mechanics are the postulates of special relativity and general relativity. Third Quantum mechanics > is a branch of physics which deals with physical phenomena at microscopic scales, where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. Quantum mechanics departs from classical mechanics primarily at the quantum realm of atomic and subatomic length scales. Quantum mechanics provides a mathematical description of much of the dual particlelike and wavelike behavior and interactions of energy and matter.
