usually treated as singularThe system of mechanics which relies on Newton's laws of motion concerning the relations between forces acting and motions occurring.
‘The fact that we can describe the motions of the world using Newtonian mechanics tells us nothing about the world.’
‘A strong example of operative mathematics is Newtonian mechanics in physics: it's a great tool to help you predict what is going to happen in the world.’
‘In order to reconcile Maxwell's equations with Newtonian gravity, with Newtonian mechanics, we had to replace Newton with special relativity.’
‘In the field of physics, a clear line divides quantum mechanics from traditional Newtonian mechanics, but this is not true for chemistry.’
‘Imbued with a deep appreciation of the entire history of science, Einstein regarded the theory of relativity as the inevitable consequence of the challenge posed to Newtonian mechanics by electromagnetic theory.’
