Welcome to MIT. Here’s your introduction to Physics.
Today, we present Physics I: Classical Mechanics, a freshman course taught by Walter Lewin, the popular physics professor who was recently written up in The New York Times. The course covers the foundations of modern physics, which takes you from Isaac Newton’s groundbreaking work to supernovas, and which covers such other topics as Fluid Mechanics, Kinetic Gas Theory, Binary Stars, Neutron Stars, Black Holes, Resonance Phenomena, Musical Instruments, and Stellar Collapse.
You can download the course lectures in video via iTunes or in various formats here. (The course is also listed in our collection of Free Online Courses from Great Universities, which now contains over 200 free courses.) For more lecture series by Walter Lewin, look here (Electricity and Magnetism) and here (Vibrations and Waves).
