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
Great course. Good explanations and examples. The quizes and tests are not very easy sometimes, but they do you let think again. Very enjoyable! Just the course I was looking for a long time!
The problems were challenging but it is doable with a lot of patience and hard work. You can do it guys!
This course is really great for aspiring physicists and engineers. This made me more interested in this this field and helped me in visualizing the inner workings of the universe.
Its a great course for beginner.The emphasis on significant figure was a good thing about this course
