Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics

Deepto Chakrabarty, Peter Dourmashkin, Anna Frebel, Analia Barrantes, George Stephans, Michelle Tomasik, Aidan MacDonagh, MITx

Learn about kinematics and dynamics in this calculus-based physics course.

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 four 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.

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 theIntroductory Mechanics XSeries Program Page to learn more and to enroll in all four modules.
