## Subtopics

- Inertial frame of reference [r]: A frame of reference in which the laws of physics take their simplest form.
^{[e]}

- Classical mechanics [r]: The science of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of bodies and aggregates of bodies geometrically distributed within a certain boundary under the action of a system of forces.
^{[e]} - Special relativity [r]: Theory of the effects of motion on observations of things such as length, time, mass and energy. The theory is based on the postulates that all laws of physics are the same in all inertial reference systems, and that the vacuum speed of light is a universal constant, independent of the speed of the source.
^{[e]} - Inertial forces [r]: Forces introduced to enable the use of the laws of motion in accelerating frames of reference, such as rotational frames
^{[e]} - Vector (mathematics) [r]: A mathematical object with magnitude and direction.
