# Physics: Concepts of Classical Mechanics

## What you'll learn

- In this course you will understand the concepts of mechanics in Physics.
- Besides covering the basic concepts, I have also tried to address the conceptual loopholes, which many students generally face in mechanics.
- In this course, I have also covered the basic mathematical tools, which are widely used in Physics.
- I have used many real world examples, which will help you appreciate that fact that nature often defies our intuition.
- So this is a complete course on Mechanics which will make you fall in love with Physics

## Requirements

- Knowledge of elementary mathematics

## Description

In this course we will cover the concepts of classical mechanics. Let me ask few questions:

In both Circular and Rotational motion, we see some sort of motion in a circular path. So are the concepts of circular and rotational motion same? If not, how are they related?

Let’s take one more example. Well Pressure = Force/Area. Force is a vector quantity (It has both magnitude and direction), while area as we have learnt is a scalar. Therefore, Pressure should be a vector quantity; However, Pressure in liquids is a scalar quality. It does not depend on any direction. Why is that the case?

In this course, we will go deep into the concepts and develop the capability to answer such questions. We will cover the following sections in this course:

All the mathematical tools needed in Physics

Kinematics

Newton's laws

Various types of motion such as Circular motion, Simple harmonic motion etc

Rotational mechanics

Fluid mechanics

I have tried to explain the concepts with the help of various practical real-world examples. Besides theoretical concepts, there are ample number of solved numerical examples in this course. This course covers a methodical approach to solving numerical problems. There is a dedicated section in this course on the concepts of various mathematical tools, which you will need throughout in Physics.

Whether you are in high school preparing for an engineering entrance examination or you are looking to hone your skills or you are just curious to learn about Physics, you will find this course very useful.

## Who this course is for:

- This course will help students preparing for admission to undergraduate engineering courses all around the world.
- Even If you are someone, who is just curious about Physics and wants to know "how a rocket moves in space", "why soldiers don't match on a bridge" etc, you will find this course very useful.

## Instructor

My name is Prateek Kumar. I have studied Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati. I got an All India Rank of 2161 in IIT-JEE (2007) examination (among around 2.5 Lakh applicants)

I have also done my MBA from Indian school of Business (ISB).

I am very passionate about Physics and my goal is to make people enjoy Physics.
