Physics I is a first-year physics course which introduces students to classical mechanics. This course has a hands-on focus, and approaches mechanics through take-home experiments. Topics include: kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, universal gravitation, statics, conservation laws, energy, work, momentum, and special relativity.
OCW Scholar courses are designed for self-paced study with no registration required. They are substantially more complete than typical OCW courses, blending new online content with material used in MIT classes.
