# 8.01 Physics I

Introduces classical mechanics. Space and time: straight-line kinematics; motion in a plane; forces and static equilibrium; particle dynamics, with force and conservation of momentum; relative inertial frames and non-inertial force; work, potential energy and conservation of energy; kinetic theory and the ideal gas; rigid bodies and rotational dynamics; vibrational motion; conservation of angular momentum; central force motions; fluid mechanics. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format which features students working in groups of three, discussing concepts, solving problems, and doing table-top experiments with the aid of computer data acquisition and analysis.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by D. Chakrabarty and P. Dourmashkin.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Classical Mechanics site or on the 8.01 Stellar site.

# 18.01 Calculus

Differentiation and integration of functions of one variable, with applications. Informal treatment of limits and continuity. Differentiation: definition, rules, application to graphing, rates, approximations, and extremum problems. Indefinite integration; separable first-order differential equations. Definite integral; fundamental theorem of calculus. Applications of integration to geometry and science. Elementary functions. Techniques of integration. Polar coordinates. L'Hopital's rule. Improper integrals. Infinite series: geometric, p-harmonic, simple comparison tests, power series for some elementary functions.

This class has no prerequisites.

18.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by W. Minicozzi.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 1-190.
