Mechanics is a branch of physics that focuses on physical laws that describe the motion of objects affected by forces. There are two major branches: classical and quantum. Classical mechanics is focused on "macroscopic" objects, basically not tiny ones. Quantum mechanics is focused on atomic movement and the like, I'd guess. So, classical mechanics is a field of study where you study the movement of things from a speck of dust all the way up to galaxies.

And speeds are small compared to speed of light. (If not, classical mechanics is not a valid approximation any more and you have to use relativity instead).

classical mechanics is that branch of physics which deals with the effect of force on macroscopic objects that have a maximum speed very less compared to the speed of light. newton's three laws of motion describe classical mechanics
