The Laws of Classical Physics

  • Genady P. CherepanovEmail author


This chapter serves to introduce and discuss the method of invariant integrals using some well-known laws of physics. This method is applied to derive and calculate the buoyancy principle (Archimedes), the force of inertia and motion laws (Newton and Galileo), Einstein’s equation connecting mass and energy, the law of gravity (Newton), the lift force of wings and the theory of flight (Kutta and Joukowski), the driving force of dislocations and foreign atoms in elastic materials (Peach, Koehler, and Eshelby), and Coulomb’s Law of the interaction force of electric charges. This chapter is for everybody interested in physics.
