Hey, I'd like to study physics in a university so now I'm doing physics. I got a gap year left and then I'll be enrolling.

I'd like Youtube channel suggestions that explain physics all the way from the very beginning working towards the more demanding stuff.
>>
I really, really, really like that gif.

>>7780967
Me too! Save it, it's all yours my friend :)
>>
>>7780967
This.

I got maximum chuckling out of it.
>>
>>7780991
Thanks, Lori.
>>
>>7780962
Ok now please, I'm eager to watch some physics, anyone got anything?
>>
>>7780997
Tried khan academy?
>>
>>7780962

Not OP, but same here. Is there one like PatrickJMT where they just teach you the concept then goes straight to how to do the problems? I need one for Physics I Mechanics.

YouTube will get you a soft understanding of only the basics.

In order to get it on the first time through, I would deeply recommend learning vector calculus before starting, but barring that, watch some course lectures or Khan academy online.

You will probably not understand anything until you do hours and hours of practice problems.
>>
>>7780999
yes, but I'd like more of a visual approach alongside Khan.

>Physics oriented YouTube Channels

For neat videos with good explanations of physical laws, check out >Veritasium. Here's his trailer: https://youtu.be/5THOUSvpCKk
His channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/1veritasium

If you want a slightly more monotonous genre (but still really interesting) check out >Sixty Symbols. Here's their video on Lagrangian Points: https://youtu.be/mxpVbU5FH0s
Their channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/sixtysymbols


If you want actual lessons, MIT and Stanford post all of their stuff online (MIT has more variety and is higher quality).

Stanford: http://freevideolectures.com/University/Stanford/Physics/Subject/Page1

If you are agood at working things through on your own, buy a set of the Feynmann Lectures on Physics and work your way through starting from page 1.

If you do this, it would really help to have someone with a great understanding of physics to ask questions and to check your work.

Forgot to mention the Cosmos series. If you want something to kick back and watch, Cosmos is THE series. Carl Sagan hosted the original series back in 1980.

Neil deGrasse Tyson rebooted the series. Check here for the pilot: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x35e2io

Yes, Feynman teaches you to think from a whole new and very simple perspective.
>>
>>7780962
just a forewarning about university physics. In high school I took honors physics and all that but my HS was shit so when I got to college I fell way behind. Make sure your work ethic is up to par. Just make sure you guys don't bite off more than you can chew your first semester. It ruined my life.
>>
>>7781693
This exactly. HS is a joke when it comes to preparing you for college.

Physics is a very difficult but incredibly rewarding subject. You need to know how to put forth REAL effort, but if the math and concepts interest you, then you'll have a good time.

Intro Stuff (i.e. Newtonian Mechanics, E&M, Waves)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiEHVhv0SBMpP75JbzJShqw/featured

Undergrad level stuff:
http://theoreticalminimum.com/courses

(Even the GR course is undergrad level. i.e. mainly tensor calc w/ little formal geometry)
Graduate level:
https://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/training/perimeter-scholars-international/lectures/2013/2014-psi-lectures

These include pretty much everything.
- Graduate level Quantum Theory
- General Relativity
- Canonical QFT
- Path Integral QFT
- Graduate level Stat. Mech.
- Condensed Matter
- Standard Model
- Cosmology
- Quantum Information
- Beyond the Standard Model
- Quantum Gravity (i.e. LQG style stuff)
- String Theory

If you learn the Math first and then do the Physics, you can concentrate on the Physics and it is much easier.

What trips up so many people in Physics is that they don't know the Math they need.
