Physics I: Classical Mechanics: Course Description

Dr. George Stephans teaches the 'Physics I: Classical Mechanics' OpenCourseWare at MIT. Topics discussed in this undergraduate-level course include force, gravity, vectors, equilibrium, kinematics, Newton's laws, harmonic motion, angular energy and momentum. In addition, students will study the work of famous physicists, including Newton, Einstein and others. This class builds a foundation in elementary Physics topics upon which further studies in more advanced classes are based. Any student interested in studying Physics or applying Physics principles to other fields, including Engineering and Chemistry is encouraged to take advantage of this free online course.

Lecture notes, exams and a list of suggested reading materials are available online for free. To learn more, visit the intro to classical mechanics course page.
