Periodic Motion

by Jared Rovny

Study MCAT Physics with Lecturio!

This course covers the basic descriptions of periodic motion, the definition of a wave, and discusses 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

Jared Rovny is a graduate student at Yale University and has been preparing students for their MCAT for several years. He knows how to explain even the most complicated theories of physics in an understandable way.

Get ready for your exams with high–yield video lectures, topic reviews and quiz questions.

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.
