Mechanics

Kinematics and Dynamics

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:

  • Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics
  • Mechanics: Momentum and Energy
  • Mechanics: Rotational Dynamics
  • Mechanics: Simple Harmonic Motion
