Introductory Physics

Start with the basics - the fundamentals of physics that all students of physics start with. Based on an average high school curriculum.

Motion in One Dimension

To learn how objects move through space, we need to start with the simplest case: motion in one dimenion.

Motion in Two Dimensions

With our understanding of motion in one dimension, we explore motion in two dimensions.

Forces and the Laws of Motion

The phenomena and laws that affect the motion of objects through space, and how to predict motion.

Circular Motion

A special case of applying the Laws of Motion for a common occurance in real life.

Work and Energy

The phenoma that makes things move, and is what makes the universe run at all scales.

Linear Momentum and Collisions

An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by an external force - such as a collision.

Rotational Motion and Angular Momentum

How objects behave when they are rotating on an axis, such as wheels or spinning tops.

Oscillations

How objects behave when they are moving back and forth, such as a person swinging on a swing.

Waves and Sounds

The phenoma of many objects oscillating at the save time, such as ocean waves and sound waves.

Electricity and Magnetism

Develop an understanding of a phenoma that allows our society to function that we often take for granted.

Fluid Mechanics

Develop an understanding of how fluids behave and how it allows our society to function.
