Review of Chapters 1-8

We review midterm #4 as well as chapters 1-8 on vectors, kinematics, projectile motion, Newton's laws, and work and energy
Peter Beyersdorf author

Review of chapters 13-16

We review oscillation and simple harmonic motion, fluid mechanics, waves and sound.

Doppler Shift and Interference

We look at wave effects for sound including interference and beat notes and the doppler shift caused by a moving listener or source.
Peter Beyersdorf author
26.11.2008

Sound and Hearing

We continue to look at mechanical waves, focusing on sound and hearing, specifically the decibel units for sound level.
Peter Beyersdorf author
24.11.2008

Mechanical Waves

We introduce waves by considering solutions to the wave equations for propagation along a string. We introduce the concepts of superposition and standing waves.
Peter Beyersdorf author
20.11.2008

Fluid Dynamics

We introduce the continuity equation for mass and volume flow rate and the Bernoulli equation for relating pressure, height and speed of fluid.
Peter Beyersdorf author
18.11.2008

Hydrostatics

We introduce density, pressure and the buoyant force and derive Pascal's law for fluids.
Peter Beyersdorf author
13.11.2008

Periodic Motion

We look at parameters of periodic motion. Specifically we investigate simple harmonic motion and the pendulum.
Peter Beyersdorf author

Review of chapters 9-12

Review of angular motion and equilibrium
Peter Beyersdorf author
4.11.2008

Gravitation

We look at Newton's law of gravitation and introduce the universal gravitational constant. We also discuss escape velocity and black holes.
Peter Beyersdorf author
25.09.2008

Friction

We discuss systems in equilibrium and introduce the frictional force.
Peter Beyersdorf author
18.09.2008

Free Body Diagrams

We discuss how to use free body diagrams to solve problems involving forces.
Peter Beyersdorf author
15.09.2008

Newton's Laws

We introduce Newton's 3 laws.
Peter Beyersdorf author

Circular Motion and Relative Velocity

We derive the centripetal acceleration of an object moving in circular motion and also discuss the concept of relative motion where an objects velocity is described in a different reference frame than that in which it is desired.
Peter Beyersdorf author
8.09.2008

Projectile Motion

We apply the equations of motion to problems in 2 dimensions.
Peter Beyersdorf author
28.08.2008

Motion in 1 dimension

We finish our introduction of vectors with an introduction of the dot product and the cross product. We introduce displacement, velocity and acceleration as parameters of motion

Units, Scalars and Vectors

We look at dimensions and units of physical quantities and discuss the difference between scalars and vectors, as well as introduce vector addition. [note no audio due to technical issues]
