Mechanics is the basis of much of physics, engineering and other technological disciplines. It begins by quantifying motion, and then explaining it in terms of forces, energy, momentum and forces including gravity. This allows us to analyse the operation of many familiar phenomena around us, but also the mechanics of planets, stars and galaxies.

Keeping the lights on, gasoline in our cars, and our homes comfortable, requires energy resources. These include coal, methane, petroleum, uranium, biomass, water, wind, geothermal, and sunlight. Knowing how we measure, acquire, and use these resources is critical information because human population and income aspirations are increasing, while access to the means of prosperity—energy dense and affordable resources—is at best uneven.
