Mechanics Quizzes & Trivia

Mechanics is the science of how things function physically and react to their environment. Did you know that the 14th century theory of impetus later developed into the theories of inertia, velocity, acceleration and momentum? Can you name the scientist who developed the theory of impetus?
Newton’s work Principia Mathematica introduced his laws of motion to the world, signaling the beginnings of classical mechanics. Do you know the difference between classical and quantum mechanics? There were three early scientists who really laid the foundation for the modern understanding of mechanics. Can you name them? If you guessed Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, then you might be ready to take one of our quizzes. See how many answers you can get right!
