4 minPhilosophy lesson 13 CQ
Before you dive into vectors and forces, you should ask yourself: What exactly is physics? Learn about the highly ambitious nature of this field of science.
3 minPhysics lesson 22 CQ
In this lesson, start thinking about how to use scalars and vectors in real-world scenarios involving speed, distance, time, velocity, and displacement.
3 minFREEPhysics lesson 3Free2 CQ
Finding speed isn't always a matter of dividing distance by time! Learn the difference between average and instantaneous speed, and how to calculate both.
16 minPhysics lesson 49 CQ
Graphing can help make physics concepts easier to understand and track. With this lesson, see how to graph velocity, displacement, and acceleration.
6 minFREEPhysics lesson 5Free4 CQ
Learn about the physics of falling with FlippedPhysics, who explains how air resistance, surface area, and gravity affect how objects (and people) fall.
10 minGeometry lesson 66 CQ
Equations can be a bit boring, so FlippedPhysics uses basic geometry to illustrate the derivation of five equations of constant acceleration in this lesson.
5 minPhysics lesson 73 CQ
In physics, the x- and y-dimensions tend to be looked at separately. To help wrap your head around this, watch a demo with balls going in different directions.
4 minPhysics lesson 83 CQ
Learn how to solve problems in two dimensions with vectors! Follow a simple example in this lesson to see how to break velocity down into its components.
9 minPhysics lesson 95 CQ
When was the last time you had an epiphany sitting under an apple tree? In this physics lesson, learn Newton's First Law, and review the definition of force.
4 minPhysics lesson 103 CQ
In physics, mass and weight refer to two different measurements! David defines mass and weight, and explains how these quantities relate to gravity.
5 minPhysics lesson 113 CQ
Equations are at the heart of physics! This lesson presents ways to write equations for scenarios in which forces like gravity and friction are in balance.
10 minPhysics lesson 126 CQ
When you're in an elevator, can you tell you're moving? The answer to this physics question, clearly, involves forces! Learn to calculate force in newtons.
3 minPhysics lesson 132 CQ
When a car and fly collide, why is the car fine while the bug is obliterated? Newton's third law of motion offers offers a clue, but the answer is surprising!
4 minPhysics lesson 143 CQ
FlippedPhysics walks you through the basics of inclines, starting with a simple diagram and graph to illustrate the forces moving a ball down a hill.
7 minPhysics lesson 154 CQ
FlippedPhysics explains the difference between static and kinetic friction, the equation for frictional force, and demonstrates how powerful friction can be!
6 minFREEPhysics lesson 16Free4 CQ
Ever wonder what it is that keeps satellites in orbit and the world spinning? This lesson explores circular motion, looking specifically at centripetal force.
6 minPhysics lesson 174 CQ
David introduces the law of universal gravitation, explaining the inverse square law and equations you're likely to find on your next physics test!
7 minPhysics lesson 184 CQ
Learn the definitions and equations of energy, work, and power in physics, and how to differentiate between these foundational terms, in this lesson.
