This lecture is all about motion of projectiles (if air drag can be ignored). The objects experience a constant vertical acceleration due to the acceleration of gravity (see also Lecture 12). This le...
762 viewsThis lecture is all about Newton's First (inertia), Second (F=ma) and Third (action=-reaction) Laws. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics, as taught in Fall 1999 by Dr...
645 viewsThis lecture is about uniform circular motion. There is a constant radial acceleration (centripetal acceleration) but constant tangential speed. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mech...
660 viewsThis lecture is about vectors and how to add, subtract, decompose and multiply vectors. Decomposing vectors in 2 (or 3) dimensions is a key concept that will be used throughout the course. This lectu...
621 viewsThis lecture is an introduction to kinematics which ultimately leads (in Lecture 4) to trajectories in 3 dimensions. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics, as taught in Fall 199...
565 viewsThis lecture is about units, dimensions, measurements and associated uncertainties, dimensional analysis, and scaling arguments. This lecture is part of 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics, as taught...
