The aim of classical mechanics is not only the kinematic description of movements, but above all the tracing back to as few general principles as possible, which are then called natural laws. Often this is referred to as the “why” question of the movement. Strictly speaking, however, this is a question that lies beyond the possibilities and demands of physics. Nevertheless, the formulation is as simple as possible and - according to all previous experience in a certain area of application - generally applicable laws of nature are extremely useful in order to derive properties of more complicated natural processes that have never been examined. In this sense one understands these laws as the causes of the movement.
