    • Dynamics That branch of mechanics which treats of the motion of bodies Kinematics and the action of forces in producing or changing their motion kinetics. Dynamics is held by some recent writers to include statics and not kinematics.

    • n dynamics The mathematical theory of force; also (until recently the common acceptation), the theory of forces in motion; the science of deducing from given circumstances (masses, positions, velocities, forces, and constraints) the motions of a system of particles.
    • n dynamics The moving moral or physical forces of any kind, or the laws which relate to them.

In poetry:

So blissfully I slip away
From brazen and dynamic day
To dingle cool . . .
Now tell me friend, if in your eyes,
By being simple I am wise,—
Or just a fool?
"Simplicity" by Robert W Service
There's something of me in each one
With whom I work and play,
For islanded there can be none
In this dynamic day;
And meshed with me perchance may be
A leper in Cathay.
"You And Me" by Robert W Service
Poet, whose words are like the tight-packed seed
Sealed in the capsule of a silver flower,
Still at your art we wonder as we read,
The art dynamic charging each word with power.

The fact that intelligent systems, and experimental equipment are macroscopic and follow a dynamics that, for most or all variables of interest, is classical mechanical does not exclude their following quantum dynamical laws.
