Unfortunately, the extent of our physics knowledge still does not allow us to see clearly the crucial importance of this science. A wide range of physics notions such as the theory of motion, strength, force, and mechanics in general are still vague for beginners. Those “who do not know movement, do not understand nature” Aristotle once said. Although several pages of the author’s book “Physics for Entertainment” (2 volumes) are dedicated to mechanics’ problems, it very useful that he devoted a separate, but similarly written, book to mechanics. “Mechanics for Entertainment” is not a textbook. Instead it is a freestyle book with some entertaining experiments and descriptions of some exciting natural phenomena. I have included a number of mechanics laws applications in engineering, sports, circus performances and many other unexpected areas.
