8.02 is a second-semester freshman physics class in electromagnetism. The website features lecture notes, problem sets with solutions, exams with solutions, links to related resources, and a complete set of videotaped lectures. The 36 video lectures on Electricity and Magnetism, by Professor Lewin, were recorded on the MIT campus during the Spring of 2002. Prof. Lewin is well-known at MIT and beyond for his dynamic and engaging lecture style.
In addition to the traditional topics of mechanical vibrations and waves, coupled oscillators, and electro-magnetic radiation, students will also learn about musical instruments, red sunsets, glories, coronae, rainbows, haloes, X-ray binaries, neutron stars, black holes and big-bang cosmology. OpenCourseWare presents another version of 8.03 that features a full set of lecture notes and take-home experiments.
Join Professor Vincent Selhorst-Jones’ High School Physics course which combines his scientific background, acting training, and years of teaching experience to help you fully comprehend concepts rather than just “plug 'n' chug” equations. Professor Selhorst-Jones is passionate about sharing his love of physics and will help you understand how a problem comes together, what it means, and why you should care.
