This book deals with mechanics and the solving of mechanical problems with the help of pure mathematics. Mechanics, which deals with the effects that forces have on bodies, is a science. Pure mathematics, on the other hand, is an art and its theorems are universally true. This book shows how mathematics can be used to solve a mechanical problem, but also distinguishes clearly between the use of a scientific law and a mathematical theorem.
