This course serves as an introduction to the physics of force and motion. Upon completion, learners will have an understanding of how mathematical laws and conservation principles describe the motions and interactions of objects all around us. They will gain experience in solving physics problems with tools such as graphical analysis, algebra, vector analysis, and calculus.

The course follows the typical progression of topics of a first-semester university physics course: Kinematics, Newton’s Laws, Energy, and Momentum. Each of five modules contains reading links to a free textbook, complete video lectures, conceptual quizzes, and a set of homework problems. Once the modules are completed, the course ends with an exam. With 100 brief lectures and over 100 problems, this comprehensive course is similar in detail and rigor to those taught on-campus. It will thoroughly prepare learners for their upcoming introductory physics courses, or more advanced courses in physics.

What You Will Learn

- Learners will be prepared to critically evaluate real-world data and information regarding motion.

- Learners can apply mathematical laws to the motions of objects under a variety of physical circumstances.

- Learners will be prepared for more advanced courses in physics.

Course 1 of 3 in the Introduction to Mechanics Specialization.

### Syllabus

WEEK 1

1D Kinematics

The concepts you need for mathematical and graphical descriptions of uniform and accelerated motion in one dimension.

WEEK 2

2D Kinematics

The application of kinematics to motion in two dimensions, including practice with vector analysis.

WEEK 3

Newton's Laws

How forces affect motion, and the nature of several common forces in mechanics: gravitational, normal, friction, damping, tension, and fictitious.

WEEK 4

Forces and Kinematics EXAM

This module contains the exam that covers Forces and Kinematics. The style is very similar to the homework problems sets, except you must complete it on your own.
