8.01L Physics I

Class Info

Introduction to classical mechanics (see description under 8.01). Includes components of the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format. Material covered over a longer interval so that the subject is completed by the end of the IAP. Substantial emphasis given to reviewing and strengthening necessary mathematics tools, as well as basic physics concepts and problem-solving skills. Content, depth, and difficulty is otherwise identical to that of 8.01. The subject is designated as 8.01 on the transcript.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01L will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall and IAP semesters, and will be instructed by P. Jarillo-Herrero.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 6-120.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

8.01 Physics I

Class Info

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 not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by P. Dourmashkin and D. Chakrabarty.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information at the MIT + 8.01 - Google Search site or on the 8.01 Stellar site.
