✓ Test your understanding of everything listed below using Udemy quizzes and Assignment features (to truly master the concepts)

✓ 1. Explain what 1D motion is

✓ 2. Differentiate between distance & displacement, speed & velocity using very simple words

✓ 3. Calculate average values of speed and velocity (for particles moving in straight line) without having to memorise formulae

✓ 4. Differentiate, clearly, between average velocity and instantaneous velocity (Usually a topic of confusion)

✓ 5. Explain clearly what acceleration means (you will be able to explain why top speed isn’t the only thing that matters in sports cars)

✓ 6. Calculate acceleration when velocities are changing without having to memorise formulae6.

✓ 7. Differentiate between uniform and non – uniform motion

✓ 8. Draw x-t, v-t and a-t graphs for various uniform and non-uniform motion. (Graphs will no longer look abstract)

✓ 9. Analyse x-t, v-t, and a-t graphs to extract informations about position, velocity and accelerations.

✓ 10. Derive the most important SUVAT equations from graphs and identify general strategy to solve any problem on uniformly accelerated motion.

✓ 11. Solve variety of numerical problems on uniformly accelerated motion using the SUVAT equations (Most important takeaway of this course)

✓ 12. Explain the concrete meaning of differentiation and integration to someone (The essence of calculus).

✓ 13. Figure out the rules of differentiation and integration logically (This is unique, as most introductory courses just state the rules of calculus without any logic or explanation)

✓ 14. Understand what position functions and velocity functions are

✓ 15. Using differentiation, calculate instantaneous speeds and accelerations for non uniform motion. (from position and velocity functions)

✓ 16. Using integrals, calculate area under curves, velocities and positions for non uniform motion.(from velocity functions)

✓ 17. Explain why differentiation represents slopes and integration, area under graphs.

✓ 18. Explain the characteristics of a projectile motion

✓ 19. Solve numerical problems on projectile motion.

✓ 20. Explain, intuitively, why velocity is a relative concept.

✓ 21. Understand what reference frames are.

✓ 22. Calculating velocity of an object from different reference frames mentally. (This skill is especially important for solving some tricky problems in physics)

✓ 23. Solve tedious looking problems with few steps by changing reference frames

✓ 24. Be ready to learn higher concepts of motion in 2 dimensions.

• No prior physics knowledge required. (We will start from scratch).

• All concepts can be understood intuitively without any (or hardly any) math.

• Basic algebra (Like “x + 10 = 25, find x”) for solving numerical problems.

• Calculator or calculator app (Optional).

• A pen/pencil and a book/pieces of paper to solve assignment and quiz problems.

• If you are absolute beginner in physics or you are already taking a course but want to understand the subject deeply.

• If you don’t like to just memorise equations but understand where they come from and how to use them.

• If you find problem solving in 1D motion hard, this course is highly recommended.

• If you are high school student, this course is very highly recommended.

Hello there, I am Mahesh Shenoy, but you can call me Mashy I am basically an electronics engineer, but I shifted branches from applied electronics to pure science – namely physics about 4 years ago. My passion for physics grew watching the famous Walter Lewin lectures on youtube, and I always had a thing for teaching. As a student I know exactly what makes lectures boring, and uninteresting. I have dedicated past few years to master physics and teaching. I would say I am quite pleased with where I stand Whether you will be able to master concepts of physics, is something that only you can decide. I can promise you, if you hear me out, I ll make you love physics. I ll make you see physics in your everyday world, and your life will never remain the same!
