Course Description

8.01 is a first-semester freshman physics class in Newtonian Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, and Kinetic Gas Theory. In addition to the basic concepts of Newtonian Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, and Kinetic Gas Theory, a variety of interesting topics are covered in this course: Binary Stars, Neutron Stars, Black Holes, Resonance Phenomena, Musical Instruments, Stellar Collapse, Supernovae, Astronomical observations from very high flying balloons (lecture 35), and you will be allowed a peek into the intriguing Quantum World.

OCW also presents Professor Lewin freshman physics course series 8.02 - Electricity and Magnetism - with a complete set of 36 video lectures from the Spring of 2002 and 8.03 - Vibrations and Waves - with a complete set of 23 video lectures from the Fall of 2004.
