Periodic Motion

by Jared Rovny

Study Physics for your MCAT with Lecturio!

This course covers the basic descriptions of periodic motion and includes the definition of a wave and a discussion of objects undergoing periodic motion due to Hooke’s law (restorative force).

Learn what waves are, how they are described, and how we can think about and mathematically describe periodic motion in the context of Hooke's law.

Understand the idea of waves and prepare for further lectures on sound and light.

Learn about:

  • Wave Phenomena and How to Describe Waves
  • Periodic Motion and the Influence of Restorative Force
  • Velocity Equation for Waves

Pretty good
By Anna H. on 10. January 2017 for Periodic Motion Example

The lecture itself is good. His pace is slow enough to follow, yet not too slow, and he is extremely clear. Including questions in later lectures would be a great improvement to the course.
