Requirements

Dear students,

Welcome to this course “Master the Fundamentals of Mechanics through Problem-Solving”!

This course is designed specially for students who are: doing college-level physics, taking their IGCSE/GCE A level Physics, the IB HL/SL Physics examinations or simply anyone who is interested to learn the basics of Mechanics.

At the end of the course, and depending on which exams you are taking, you will learn most/all of the following:

- Kinematics (Speed, Velocity, Acceleration, Distance and Displacement)
- Kinematics (Velocity-Time Graph and Displacement-Time Graph)
- Kinematics Equations
- Kinematics Projectile Motion
- Kinematics Problem-Solving
- Dynamics (Impulse and Momentum)
- Dynamics (Newton’s Laws of Motion)
- Dynamics Problem-Solving
- Forces (Elastic Force and Hooke’s Law)
- Forces (Pressure and Upthrust)
- Equilibrium of Forces
- Forces Problem-Solving
- Work Energy Power (Work Done by a Force)
- Work Energy Power (Energy-Work Theorem)
- Work Energy Power (Force and Potential Energy)
- Work Energy Power (Conservation of Energy)
- Work Energy Power (Power and Efficiency)
- Work Energy Power Problem-Solving
- Circular Motion (Angular Velocity and Linear Velocity)
- Circular Motion (Centripetal Acceleration and Force)
- Circular Motion (Non-Uniform Vertical Circular Motion)
- Circular Motion Problem-Solving

Along the way, there will be ample practice questions and quizzes for you to get familiarized with the concepts relating to mechanics. I will also add bonus lectures in the near future to further enhance your understanding of the topics and problem-solving techniques. If you encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to contact me for more clarifications.

I hope that you will find this course useful in your academic pursuit. Enjoy the course! Cheers!
