# Physics I: Classical Mechanics

### 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.

8.01classical mechanics and

8.02 electricity and magnetism If anyone have those

materials can you please upload it

thanks in advace

Feynman would have it guess implies computational

consequences (mathematical theory) is compared to experiment

(implies real world outcome).

Saew wrote 6 years ago.This is lesson 7, Weight and Weightlessness. Where is the

one about friction?

to the one about Friction?

Carlos Rodriguez wrote 6 years ago.Hi, I just want to say that this lecture is supposed to be

about friction. It is possible to post the friction lecture?
