    Lecture 1: History of Dynamics; Motion in Moving Reference Frames

    Lecture 1: History of Dynamics; Motion in Moving Reference Frames

    Prof. Vandiver introduces key historical thinkers in the study of dynamics. He then derives equations of motion using Newton's laws, gives an introduction to kinematics using reference frames and vectors, and goes over motion in moving reference frames.

    Lecture 2: Newton's Laws & Describing the Kinematics of Particles

    Prof. Vandiver goes over kinematics (describing the motion of particles and rigid bodies), Newton's three laws of motion, about action and reaction forces, the importance of an inertial reference frames, and the definition of center of mass.
