Mechanics

Mechanics is the branch of physics that deals with the motion of bodies and how the use of force influences those bodies, including when they are at rest.  There are three branches of mechanics: statics, dynamics, and kinematics. Statics deal with forces acting on a body at rest. Kinematics describes the possible motion of a body or bodies. Kinetics tries to explain or predict the motions that will happen under certain situations.
