Who is this course for?

This course is for students who want to understand how to solve moment of inertia problems for various kinds of rigid shapes and bodies. The shortcut techniques that you learn here will help you to remember and derive all the moment of inertia formulas easily and apply them in different situations.

Why this course

Rotation is one of the most important topics in Physics. Building a good conceptual understanding in the topic will help you solve many problems that appear difficult or complex.

In this course, Dr. Balaji Sampath introduces some useful shortcuts for you to calculate the moment of inertia of different kinds of rigid bodies, shapes and frames. Learning these problem-solving techniques will help you solve problems in this topic very easily.

What does the course contain?

This micro course contains 5 concept lectures and 25 questions with video solutions. You should be able to complete this micro-course in 3 hours. So, with just 3 hours of learning, you can master an important concept that will help you solve many moment of inertia problems.

What do you have to do?

    You should finish the course in a maximum of 2 sittings over 1 or 2 days. At each sitting, ensure that you see the videos and solve the exercise questions, undisturbed     and without distractions.

    Please use headphones when you watch the videos and take notes when you see them.

    While doing the exercise questions, work it out in your notebook and then enter the answer to see if you got it right.

    Working things out yourself is the best and only way to learn Physics.

    If you work out all the exercise questions in this course, you will master an extremely useful problem-solving technique in just 3 hours!
