Course introduction by Dr. Walter Lewin to 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics, as taught in Fall 1999 by Dr. Lewin, then Prof. Lewin, at MIT. This video was ... Fallow us!
731 viewsClassical Mechanics, in spite of all of its impressive predictive power, fails to explain many microscopic behaviors. This led to the development of Quantum ... Fallow us!
694 viewsThis lecture is an introduction to kinematics which ultimately leads (in Lecture 4) to trajectories in 3 dimensions. This lecture is of 8.01 Physics I: Classical ... Fallow us!
625 viewsThis lecture is about vectors and how to add, subtract, decompose and multiply vectors. Decomposing vectors in 2 (or 3) dimensions is a key conc t that will be ... Fallow us!
528 viewsAngular momentum (a vector) is introduced. The rate of change of angular momentum is related to the torque (also a vector). In the absence of an external ... Fallow us!

598 viewsConcepts covered in this lecture include gases and incompressible liquids, Pascal's Principle, hydrostatic and barometric pressure. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanic...
601 viewsThe momentum of individual objects can change in a variety of ways. The rocket equation was derived and discussed. Demonstration of impulse and impact time courtesy of Dr. Peter Dourmashkin, MIT. Th...
757 viewsElasticity and Young's Modulus. The fractional length deformation of a material (the strain) depends on the force per unit area (the stress). The stress vs. strain dependence is described con...

587 viewsConcepts covered in this lecture begin with the restoring force of a spring (Hooke's Law) which leads to an equation of motion that is characteristic of a simple harmonic oscillator (SHO). Us...
622 viewsThe concepts introduced are: work, conservative forces, potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, and Newton's law of universal gravitation. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I...
