– Good morning. Today we’re going to review the dynamics portion of the AP Physics C Mechanics Curriculum. You know, Newtons three laws and friction and stuff. – Don’t say, “And stuff,” just say, “Newton’s laws and friction.” ♫ Flipping Physics – Billy, what is Newton’s First Law? – When viewed from an inertial reference […]

This episode is supported by The Great Courses Plus. A physicist sees a guy standing on the edge of a rooftop and shouts, don’t do it. You have so much potential. We all know what it feels like to be energetic to have energy it’s this something that allows us to move, be active, get […]

♪♪ Nice shot, Tom.(sighs)Ooh, mine, not so much. Seems like the momentum of my ball got lost, or did it?Pool is a game of real skill,and it’s also a way to look atone of the most powerful laws of physics.We’ll find out how in this segment of “Physics in Motion,” as we look at the […]

Hey it’s me Destin. Welcome back to Smarter Every Day. So if you want to become smart in any particular field you have to go talk to the experts. This is why I went to Germany to a guy named Jörg Sprave. [thunder] Now today we’re gonna learn about the physics of slingshots but before […]

Professor Ramamurti Shankar: Let me remind you that everything I did so far in class came from analyzing the Lorentz transformations. And you guys should be really on top of those two marvelous equations, because all the stuff we are doing is a consequence of that. I won’t go over how we derive them, because […]

This is the last and final chapter of this subject, and I think it’s, again–we’re starting by backing off a little bit towards the end of last class. I think that there are maybe parts of it were maybe difficult for you to follow. Let me remind you of what we were trying to do. […]

If you’ve got a function f(x), you know the value at some point, and you want to go to a neighboring point, a distance Δx away. You ask, “How much does the function change?” And the answer is, the change in the function Δf is the derivative of the function at the starting point times […]

Professor Ramamurti Shankar: So, today we are going to do something different from what’s happened so far, in that we are going to study the dynamics of more than one body. Well, you might say “Look, we already did this last week, when I studied the Solar System,” where there are planets moving around the […]

Today, we will talk exclusively about work and energy. First, let’s do a one-dimensional case. The work that a force is doing, when that force is moving from point A to point B– one-dimensional, here’s point A and here is point B– and the force is along that direction or… either in this direction or […]
