"Traditionally, physics has been divided into five unites: mechanics, heat, sound light, and electricity. Recent advances however, have shown that each of these subdivisions intimately connected with matter in motion of one kind of another: translation, rotation, and vibration. The authors of this text have attempted to treat physics as the science of matter in motion, hence the title, and the relativity of all motion has been shown in the last chapter of Theory of Relativity. There has been a tendency to stress the practical side of physics, but the authors firmly feel that, although the practical applications are of supreme importance in arousing interest, the principles of physics are vital, and accordingly the emphasis has been placed on them.."
