Using Newton's Laws: 1-D motion
Investigate Newton's second law, which relates force, mass, and acceleration. Focus on gravity, which results in a force, called weight, that's proportional to an object's mass. Then take a ride in an elevator to see how your measured weight changes due to acceleration during ascent and descent.
Reversibility and the Laws of Physics
Isaac Newton's laws of physics are fully reversible; particles can move forward or backward in time without any inconsistency. But this is not our experience in the world, where the arrow of time is fundamentally connected to irreversible processes and the increase in entropy.
Newton’s Laws Of Motion
Physics is frequently one of the hardest subjects for students to tackle because it is a combination of two of the toughest subjects for most students: Math and Word Problems. What sets this series apart from other physics teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by step…

Entropy: The Second Law of Thermodynamics
Turn to an idea that has been compared to a work of Shakespeare: the second law of thermodynamics. According to the second law, entropy, a measure of disorder, always increases in a closed system. Order can only increase at the cost of even greater entropy elsewhere in the system.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics
Trace the history of the second law of thermodynamics, considered by many physicists to be the one law of physics most likely to survive unaltered for the next thousand years. The second law says that entropy--the degree of disorder in a closed system--only increases or stays the same.
Consequences of the Second Law
The second law puts limits on the efficiency of heat engines and shows that humankind's energy use could be better planned. Learn why it makes sense to exploit low-entropy, high-quality energy for uses such as transportation, motors, and electronics, while using high-entropy random thermal energy for heating.
It's a 3-D World!
Add the concept of vector to your physics toolbox. Vectors allow you to specify the magnitude and direction of a quantity such as velocity. The vector's direction can be along any axis, allowing analysis of motion in three dimensions. Then use vectors to solve several problems in projectile motion.
Time’s Arrow
Embark on the quest that will occupy the rest of the course: Why is there an arrow of time? Explore how memory and aging orient us in time. Then look at irreversible processes, such as an egg breaking or ice melting. These capture the essence of the one-way direction of…
Gravitation and Kepler’s Laws Of Motion
Physics is frequently one of the hardest subjects for students to tackle because it is a combination of two of the toughest subjects for most students: Math and Word Problems.

Newton - The Mind That Found the Future
This program is a dramatized presentation of the life of Sir Isaac Newton, as told by his friend and colleague Edmund Halley. Using both 17th- and 20th-century perspectives, this account takes viewers from Newton's study to the moon launching pad. We meet the man and the genius who contributed the…
History's Mysteries
Begin this journey by taking a closer look at concepts that were once unexplainable but are now better understood. You'll focus on two such former mysteries: the existence of an invisible "aether" through which light and sound were believed to travel and the orbit of Mercury, which seemed to violate…
