Mechanics: Motion, Forces, Energy and Gravity, from Particles to Planets

By University of New South Wales via Coursera

  • Overview
  1. MoocLab
    COURSE DESCRIPTION
    Most of the phenomena in the world around you are, at the fundamental level, based on physics, and much of physics is based on mechanics. Mechanics begins by quantifying motion, and then explaining it in terms of forces, energy and momentum. This allows us to analyse the operation of many familiar phenomena around us, but also the mechanics of planets, stars and galaxies.

    This on-demand course is recommended for senior high school and beginning university students and anyone with a curiosity about basic physics.
