A Good Book For Classical Mechanics

Hello!

I would like recommendations for a book as I mentioned in the title.
I already learned this physics in high school, but I forgot it. Also now that I'm a University student and I know mathematics like calculus, linear algebra, differential equations etc., I would like a book that does not hide these mathematics. I know that calculus is basically the mathematics of movement, so Classical Mechanics depends on it.

So generally I would like a book that has everything that I learned in high school (Newton's laws, springs, torque, rotary motion, conflicts, electrical motions, etc.) plus the actual mathematics which had been used (calculus) and the simple ones (simple algebra equations).

What I mean by the "simple ones" is that for example in high school we didn't know calculus but each thing we learned in physics had a simple equation (algebra) which we could understand and use. But I know that these "simple" equations came using Calculus and I would like to see these advanced mathematics in Classical Mechanics, how it all started and how they actually "generate" all these "simple" equations from integrations and differential equations.

I just hope you understood me, sorry for my English

PS:
If it's also translated in Greek that would be perfect!

When you say "Classical Mechanics" do you mean Physics I and II classical mechanics or do you mean more like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics?

Your description seems to indicate Physics I and II.

You probably won't go wrong with this

Basic Mechanics with Engineering Applications

Fawcett and Burdess


Dynamics and Relativity (Don't be put off by the relativity bit)

McComb


Both are really good modern books for this level.

You can probably get McComb in Greek since it is an Oxford University Book

Probably i mean Physics one and two.
