Mechanics: Momentum and Energy


This course is the second of a series of four modules that cover calculus-based mechanics. You will learn about the concepts of momentum, impulse, energy, and work, as well as the powerful idea of conservation laws. You will apply these concepts to solve interesting mechanics problems such as collisions and rockets.The modules are based on material in MIT’s Physics I, which is required for all MIT undergraduates, and is being offered as an XSeries on edX. Please visit the Introductory Mechanics XSeries Program Page to learn more and to enroll in all four modules. To understand the material in this course you should have taken Mechanics: Kinematics and Dynamics. The course image is a fire truck on top of the MIT dome. Image taken by Sarahjane10784
