Classical Physics is the most important fundamental that every science student should know. Here are topicwise videos I have shared from Youtube. They are mostly from 2 Professors – Dr. Walter Lewin (MIT) and Dr. Ramamurti Shankar (Yale University). You can follow any of them. If you like to see visual activities and some fun stuff then go for Walter Lewin but if you are a serious student who wants in-depth knowledge of the subject and ace the exams then go for Yale’s lectures. Don’t follow both or it will be hectic. I have also shared videos from SWAYAM Project you can watch those lectures too. Along with every lecture I have shared links for some question set that you can do.
For this topic, I have shared 1 video from 8.01x MIT and the other is a 2 video playlist from SWAYAM Project. After this topic, you will be able to explain the difference between the physics you have studied till now and the physics you will study from now.
Here is a practice link. (From Exemplar problems)
2 Motion Along a Straight Line
Motion in a straight line is more of a mathematics chapter than a Physics one. The first video of one-dimensional kinematics is from Walter Lewin MIT and the second one is a playlist from SWAYAM Project.
Vector is a mathematical concept but this will be used a lot in physics in every unit. It is important that you give this topic adequate time. Here I have shared 2 videos. The first one is from 8.01x MIT and the second one is from Dr. Ramamurti Shankar (Yale).
4 Motion in Two and Three Dimensions
Motion in two and 3 dimensions or what we say 3D kinematics is where the real numerical and derivations start. If you are an undergraduate, practice 2D motion more as 3D motion is just more mathematics than 2D, nothing else. The first video is from Walter Lewin and the second one is the playlist from SWAYAM Project.
5 Newton’s Laws of Motion
After this unit, Most of your physics is covered. Most of the derivations you will see in the future will have some connection to Newton’s Laws of motion. In any exam, this topic will decide if you fail or pass. I have shared 3 videos. The first one is from Walter Lewin and the second and third are from Yale university. You can watch either of the 2 teachers.

6 Force and Motion – II
This is the application unit of Newton’s Laws of motion. Here there are 3 sub-topics. Yale university covered everything in the above 2 lectures. These are videos from Walter Lewin.
No practice ques for this chapter
7 Work, Energy, and Conservation of Energy
This is another High yielding topic which you will see again and again. The first 2 lectures are from 8.01x MIT and the next two are from Yale university physics. watch the one you are comfortable with.
8 Center of Mass and Linear Momentum
This is a relatively easy topic than what you have studied till now only if your concepts are clear. Otherwise, this can give you a serious headache. The first two videos are from Walter Lewin and the next one is a video from Yale physics but it doesn’t include the center of mass.
Practice Problems – Linear Momentum
Practice Problems – Center of Mass
9 Rotational Motion
This is the toughest unit of the entire physics. There are many topics but I have shared with you all the videos under this single heading. So the first 4 videos are from 8.01x MIT and the next 3 are from Yale university physics. All the topics like, rotation, torque angular momentum, and rolling motion should be covered thoroughly and practiced.
Gravitation is a simple topic. Just one single concept is there- Kepler’s Laws. Rest everything is just an application of what we have studied till now. The first video is from 8.01x physics and the second one is Yale Physics.
