Most of the phenomena in the world around you are, at the fundamental level, based on physics, and much of physics is based on mechanics. Mechanics begins by quantifying motion, and then explaining it in terms of forces, energy and momentum. This allows us to analyse the operation of many familiar phenomena around us, but also the mechanics of planets, stars and galaxies.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MECHANICS: MOTION, FORCES, ENERGY AND GRAVITY, FROM PARTICLES TO PLANETS
Excellent course and also well-designed syllabus. Prof. Joe Wolfe's way of demonstration for each and every concepts are awesome.
such a nice course for those students who want to improve their mechanics so it is a good platform.
Great examples and material. Some of the links may not work or are not targeted at the beginner student.
The problems were challenging but it is doable with a lot of patience and hard work. You can do it guys!
