Translational Motion, Forces, Work, Energy, and Equilibrium

Translational Motion, Forces, Work, Energy, and Equilibrium

by Jared Rovny

This course covers the material of content category 4A of the official MCAT exam content outline.

Energy is an ever-changing component of our universe, being in continuous shift and exchange. Forces can be described as an exchange of energy between objects when they interact, opening the door for other concepts like work and motion. In order to grasp the complexity of energy exchanges within the human body, as well as the characteristics of motion via bipedal locomotion (walking), a good grasp of Newtonian physics is required.

In this course, students will be introduced to the basics of translational motion, forces, work, energy, and equilibrium. For optimal comprehension, students are required to have a college-level understanding of physics, chemistry, and calculus.

I am engineer I have studied this long time ago I was also University Professor 7 years I do know how to recognise a good teacher when I see one He is really good

Very nice

Very good explanation. I thank Lecturio for making this true.

Must read
By Neuer N. on 12. October 2021 for Intervals of Time

Very nice explanation. Just some more lingual subtitles required such as Tamil.

easy to understand for who not scientific major.

I 'm nontraditional science major but all of these videos are good description and easiest to get understand.
