Physics 100: Mastering Rotational Kinematics and Dynamics
What you'll learn
- Improve test scores
- Students will be able to solve a wide variety of problems dealing with rotational motion
- Basic physics understanding
This comprehensive course covers everything about rotational kinematics and dynamics. The course combines lectures that summarize the important concepts and tutorials that will guide you and help you develop a problem solving strategy.
Topics include in this class are:
1) Angular Motion
Review angular displacement, angular velocity and acceleration
2) Kinematics Equations for Angular Motion
analyzing motion with constant angular acceleration.
3) Dynamics of Rotational Motion
Review of torque produced by constant forces
Rotational inertial and Newton's 2nd Law applied to rotation problems
Calculating moment of inertia so simple systems and solid objects
4) Rotational Energy
Energy and work in rotational motion
Conservation of Energy applied to rolling motion.
Work and Power
5) Angular Momentum
understand the rotational analog of linear momemtum
systems with conservation of angular momentum.
There are over 50 fully solved problems ranging in difficulty. I've mixed in many conceptual problems as well as algebraic problems to help you practice applying Newton's laws to solve problems.
If at any point you don't understand something in my videos please feel free to reach out. I'm always willing to help someone learn. Physics Ninja always has your back!
Dr. E., Physics Ninja and Expert Physics and Math Teacher.
Who this course is for:
- AP physics students
- College and university students
- Anyone who wants to learn about rotation and how to analyze rotational motion
My name is Dr. E. I'm a physicist and I love teaching math and physics. I obtained my Ph.D. in physics and have been teaching physics now for over 15 years. I currently work as an engineer in mobile consumer electronics and am an adjunct physics faculty at Harper College in Chicago. I previously taught physics for the Princeton Review with a focus on MCAT physics and also trained new physics teachers. Visit my website to learn more about me.
I created these courses to make quality education more affordable. I tutor a lot of students and i know how expensive it can be to find a great, reliable tutor. All of my classes are a mix of lectures, where i review the basic theory and go over key concepts, and tutorials, where i show you how to solve problems and help you develop your own problem solving strategies. The classes contain several example problems for each topic and at the end i typically put together a series of problems ranging in difficulty for you to practice on your own. After you've tried to solve the problems on your own, come watch the videos and see how a Physics Ninja would solve the problem.
All of my courses are comprehensive which means they tend to be longer than other courses. I don't believe you can really learn physics with a 5-hour course covering a semesters worth of physics. To learn physics, you have to practice solving problems, all types of problems, conceptual and algebraic.
I'm committed to all of my students and reply to all emails and questions within 24 hours.
