Physics 100: Mastering Work, Energy, and Power

Comprehensive course including lectures and problem solving tutorials.

This comprehensive course covers kinetic energy, work, potential energy and conservation of energy.   The course combines lectures that summarize the important concepts and tutorials that will guide you and help you develop a problem solving strategy.  You’ll learn how to apply conservation of energy principles to study the dynamics of systems.

What you’ll learn

  • Solve a wide range of physics problems using energy concepts..
  • Understand and be able to apply the Work-Energy theorem to solve problems.
  • Calculate Power.
  • How to calculate the work done by spring forces, gravitational forces, and frictional forces.
  • Understand the concepts of potential energy and conservation of energy.
  • Able to read and understand potential energy curves.

Course Content

  • Introduction –> 29 lectures • 1hr 54min.
  • Springs –> 10 lectures • 52min.
  • Work, Energy and Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation –> 4 lectures • 27min.
  • Power –> 4 lectures • 16min.
  • Multiple Choice Questions –> 10 lectures • 40min.
  • Energy Problem Set –> 22 lectures • 2hr 42min.

Physics 100: Mastering Work, Energy, and Power

Requirements

  • basic knowledge of forces.
  • basic algebra.

This comprehensive course covers kinetic energy, work, potential energy and conservation of energy.   The
course combines lectures that summarize the important concepts and
tutorials that will guide you and help you develop a problem solving
strategy.  You’ll learn how to apply conservation of energy principles to study the dynamics of systems.

Topics include in this class are:

1) Kinetic Energy, Work

2) Applying Work-Energy Theorem

3) Work done by gravitational forces, springs

4) Power

5) Potential Energy and Conservation of Mechanical Energy

There are over 40 fully solved problems ranging in difficulty.   I’ve
mixed in many conceptual problems as well as algebraic problems to help
you practice applying energy principles to solve problems.

If at any point you don’t understand something in my videos please
