Mechanics

Introductory Mechanics,

This course is the third of a series of four modules that cover calculus-based mechanics. You will explore rotational motion and learn about the concepts of torque and angular momentum. You will learn about the conservation of angular momentum, and use it with other conservation laws to solve complex problems in rotational dynamics.

The modules are based on material in MIT's Physics I, which is required for all MIT undergraduates, and is being offered as an XSeries on edX. Please visit the Introductory Mechanics XSeries Program Page to learn more and to enroll in all four modules.

To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics and Mechanics: Momentum and Energy.

What you'll learn

  • High school physics
  • Calculus (on edX:
  • ,
  • and
  • ) ,
  • ,
  • 8.01x modules are prerequisites for 8.02x which will be available in spring 2018.
  • Rigid Bodies and Moment of Inertia
  • Torque
  • Angular Momentum
  • Translation and Rotation

step-by-step approach to introduce

I am having the class now, and I find the lectures are clear and using a step-by-step approach to introduce the concepts.

can still understand

Although I have not taken the previous two courses, 8.01.1x and 8.01.2x, I can still understand the materials and finish the exercises by the explanations of the instructors.
