Kinematics is a branch of classical mechanics that deals with the motion of objects without considering the forces that cause the motion. It focuses on the description of the motion of an object, including position, velocity, and acceleration, in a specific reference frame. The study of kinematics involves mathematical relationships between these three variables, as well as their derivatives and integrals.

Kinematics is used to describe the motion of a wide range of physical systems, from simple pendulums to complex mechanical systems and human movements. The field is used in many engineering and scientific applications, including robotics, biomechanics, and computer animation. The equations of kinematics provide a framework for understanding and predicting the motion of objects, and form the basis for the study of more advanced topics such as dynamics and thermodynamics.
