Learn Physics with free online courses and MOOCs from Georgetown, Stanford, U.Va., Michigan and other top universities around the world. Read reviews to decide if a class is right for you.
Learn the fundamental notions of quantum mechanics at a level that is accessible to everyone. This course is listed as one of the best online courses of all time by Class Central and was a finalist for the 2018 edX Prize for Exceptional Contributions to…
In this course we will seek to “understand Einstein,” especially focusing on the special theory of relativity that Albert Einstein, as a twenty-six year old patent clerk, introduced in his “miracle year” of 1905. Our goal will be to go behind the myth-ma…
An introduction to physics in the context of everyday objects.
In 46 episodes, Dr. Shini Somara will help you find your place in the world -- literally! -- with physics. This course is based on introductory college-level material and the 2016 AP Physics I and II curriculum.

This course introduces the basics of Digital Signal Processing and computational acoustics, motivated by the vibrational physics of real-world objects and systems. We will build from a simple mass-spring and pendulum to demonstrate oscillation, learn how…
This playlist contains the 19 video lectures of the Stanford ME356 Hypersonic Aerothermodynamics graduate class offered online during the Spring quarters of 2020 and 2021 because of the covid lockdown.
This course is an introduction to the finite element method as applicable to a range of problems in physics and engineering sciences. The treatment is mathematical, but only for the purpose of clarifying the formulation. The emphasis is on coding up the…
In this course, Professor Susskind takes a close look at the special theory of relativity and also at classical field theory.
This course covers key topics in the use of quantum mechanics in many modern applications in science and technology, introduces core advanced concepts such as spin, identical particles, the quantum mechanics of light, the basics of quantum information, a…
Breakthrough Prize winner Andrew Strominger and string theorist Cumrun Vafa rediscovered the elusive quantity of black hole entropy in a groundbreaking calculation. Join Professor Strominger for an overview of how string theory has allowed us to understa…
In this course, we will investigate: Force and conservation laws.
This subject deals primarily with equilibrium properties of macroscopic systems, basic thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium of reactions in gas and solution phase, and rates of chemical reactions.
Course covers the basic principles of Einstein's general theory of relativity, differential geometry, experimental tests of general relativity, black holes, and cosmology.
This course covers the experimental basis of quantum physics. It introduces wave mechanics, Schrödinger's equation in a single dimension, and Schrödinger's equation in three dimensions.
This course provides an introduction to nuclear science and its engineering, as well as industrial and medical applications of nuclear science.
