Course Description

Mechanics is the study of the physics of motion and how it relates to applied forces. It lays the foundation of understanding the world around us through the how and why of motion.

This physics course is the first in a series of modules that covers calculus-based mechanics. This module reviews kinematics (the geometrical description of motion) in the context of one-dimensional, multi-dimensional, and circular motion. It also reviews Newton’s laws of motion and examines their application to a wide variety of cases.

This series of modules is based on the MIT subject 8.01: Physics I, required of all MIT undergraduates. The modules are:

Simply fabulous! If you really want to learn physics, this is the best online course to start. All lectures are clear and lots of questions to put in practice what you are learning.

Probably the finest vector mechanics introduction available to any student worldwide. Congratulations to the staff that put it together and thanks to those that keep it running.

This is an excellent first part of a first year university level physics class. It balances true conceptual understanding with the application of rigorous mathematics in order to solve challenging but doable problems. Also, it lays a solid foundation for learning other as well as more advanced topics.

It's an excellent course. I learned a lot of physics and, the most important, I learned how to solve problems. The videos are very well designed. They give you a pretty clear notion of the subject. After, if you want, you can dive deeply into the concept in the provided notes. I will certaily do the next courses of the series. I want to thank you the course lecturers and staff.

Just finished the exam and I passed it. I learned so much in the past four weeks. The textbook came in really handy. I can discribe this course in one word, EXCELLENT! I'm looking forward for the second part of the 8.01 course.
