2 weeks31 Lessons


What is your first reaction when you hear the word physics? Did you imagine working through difficult equations or memorizing formulas that seem to have no real use in life outside the physics classroom? Many people come to the subject of physics with a bit of fear. But as you begin your exploration of this broad-ranging subject, you may soon come to realize that physics plays a much larger role in your life than you first thought, no matter your life goals or career choice.

In this introductory tutorial on Physics, we will introduce science and the realm of physics. We will also explore a brief history of the formal study of physics. Then we will look at motion, how to describe motion, forces producing motion, as well as a review of Sir Isaac Newton and the laws of physics that bear his name. An understanding of basic mathematical principles is required to enjoy this tutorial.
