Physics – Kinematics through Practical Examples

Course Level 2: Intermediate

Estimated Study Time: 1-2 hours

In physics the study of movement and the motion of objects is called kinematics and is a branch of mechanics. The study of the motion of objects focuses on topics such as acceleration, position and velocity.

In this course you will investigate the movement of objects by looking at the real-world application of kinematics. You will see how to answer interesting questions such as what distance does the Airbus A380 need for take-off, how long it takes for an FA-18 Hornet to take off from an aircraft carrier, and do race cars accelerate when cornering even if travelling at a constant speed. The course will walk you through a number of formulas, demystifying them by explaining and rearranging them in a clear and easy to understand way.
