Physics - Kinematics through Practical Examples

Teaching & Academics
Free Course
Kinematics is a branch of mechanics. This area of physics focuses on topics such as acceleration, position and velocity. In this course you will learn real world applications of kinematics. Learn about the take-off of an Airbus A380 and the acceleration of cars around corners. This course provides a clear description of the formulae and concepts in kinematics and provides a perfect foundation for those wishing to study physics in more depth.

Description

In physics the study of movement and the motion of objects is called kinematics and is a branch of mechanics. The study of the motion of objects focuses on topics such as acceleration, position and velocity.

In this course you will investigate the movement of objects by looking at the real-world application of kinematics. You will see how to answer interesting questions such as what distance does the Airbus A380 need for take-off, how long it takes for an FA-18 Hornet to take off from an aircraft carrier, and do race cars accelerate when cornering even if travelling at a constant speed.

The course will walk you through a number of formulae, demystifying them by explaining and rearranging them in a clear and easy to understand way.

This course will be of great interest to students who are studying physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics, to students who wish to pursue a career in any of the sciences or engineering fields, and to the learner who wants to see how science can answer real-world questions.
