Description and explanation of laws affecting behaviour of particles systems is given at the start. Subsequently, molecular level of particles systems is described. Study of kinetic behaviour of matter based on its inner structure, properties of structural elements, mutual interactions and force fields follows. Practical applications and basic calculations are shown.
