We will be discussing the first of four parts of David Tong's course notes on Classical Dynamics. The notes (only about 9 pages long) can be found here: http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/tong/dynamics/one.pdf.
(Alternatively, if you go to David Tong's "Lectures on Classical Dynamics," you will find the same notes under "1. Newtonian Mechanics," by clicking on the "PDF" link.)
Please review these notes before the meeting, and write down any steps you do not understand perfectly, or for which you could use more intuition. Post your questions to our meetup page in advance, if possible, so that others can think about how to explain it to you at the meeting.
We should have Wi-Fi and a dry-erase or some equivalent thing on hand. I'll post more when I know more, e.g., whether they allow food there. The library is here:
Seward Park Library, 192 East Broadway (at Jefferson St.), New York, NY[masked]
It's on the Lower East Side, near the E. Broadway stop on the F, the Grand Street stop on the B/D, and the Essex Street stop on the J/M/Z trains.
