Mechanics: Momentum and Energy
Learn about momentum and energy in this calculus-based physics course.
Learn about momentum and energy in this calculus-based physics course.
This course is the second of a series of modules that cover calculus-based mechanics. You will learn about the concepts of momentum, impulse, energy, and work, as well as the powerful idea of conservation laws. You will apply these concepts as powerful techniques to solve interesting mechanics problems such as collisions and rockets.
The complete series of modules is based on the MIT subject 8.01: Physics I, required of all MIT undergraduates. The modules are:
To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics. Linked above.
