This textbook offers a description of physical phenomena according to the scope of Classical Physics following an approach typical of Experimental Physics. The first volume describes phenomena related to Mechanics and Thermodynamics and the second volume analyses phenomena related to Electromagnetism also providing a digression on the phenomena that led to the crisis of Classical Physics. The level of content identifies the book as an introductory Physics textbook for Engineering and Science which requires an advanced knowledge of mathematical methods. Several cases and exercises are offered in order to allow users to test their understanding of the explained contents.
