Crash Course Physics

Motion in a Straight Line: Crash Course Physics #1

In this, THE FIRST EPISODE of Crash Course Physics, your host Dr. Shini Somara introduces us to the ideas of motion in a straight line. She talks about displacement, acceleration, time, velocity, and the definition of acceleration. 

Derivatives: Crash Course Physics #2

"CALCULUS! Today we take our first steps into the language of Physics; mathematics. Every branch of science has its own way to describe the things that it investigates. And, with Physics, that's math. In this episode, Shini talks us through derivatives and how calculus helps us to understand the world around us."

Integrals: Crash Course Physics #3

"Continuing with last week's introduction of calculus, Shini leads us through the ways that integrals can help us figure out things like distance when we have several other key bits of information."

Vectors and 2D Motion: Crash Course Physics #4

"Continuing in our journey of understanding motion, direction, and velocity... today, Shini introduces the ideas of Vectors and Scalars so we can better understand how to figure out motion in 2 Dimensions. But what does that have to do with baseball? Or two baseballs?"

Newton's Laws: Crash Course Physics #5
