Let's explore Newton’s Universal Law of gravitation together!

Sir Isaac Newton was a real genius, he realized that the force that makes an apple fall is of the same nature than the one that makes planets turn! This was a thought from the 17nth century!

This class will present his insight and the formula that came out of it. Then, it will be your turn to be active by solving 4 exercises. In all cases, you can enjoy a detailed correction of these exercises, spiced with fascinating physical facts that rise from the Universal Law of Gravitation.

*** Content of the class ***

Video 1: The lesson itself presenting the Universal Law of Gravitation.

Video 2: Two exercises with their corrections.

Video 3: Two more exercises with their corrections.

Exercises are provided also as pdf files under two forms: Full picture (to view on a screen), or printable ( so that you can work on the exercises away from the computer). Answers are provided also in a pdf document.

*** This class is part of a larger course named “Gravity, The Basics”.***

“Gravity, The Basics” explores the elementary notions of Newtonian gravity.

Class 1: “Linear Motion” (because being comfortable with this notion will allow you to make the most of the full course). This class can be taken by itself.

Class 2: “Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation”, which you can consider as a doorway to the deeper dive we will carry out in the next classes.

Class 3: “Gravitational Fields”

Class 4: “Circular Motion”

Class 5: “Orbital Motion”

Class 6: “Wrapping-up and Gravity Quiz”

*** Level of this class ***

This class is suited for end high school and entry level University students taking Physics. Any person interested in Physics and in need of a refresher on the Universal Law of Gravitation will also enjoy this class.

Music Producer & Tutor in Physics

Teacher

Edouard Andre Reny was born in 1971 in Bordeaux, France. Long studies in sciences armed him a PhD in solid state chemistry which led him to a post doctorate contract at Hiroshima University, Japan. In his early thirties, he integrated a large water treatment corporation in The Netherlands as a senior researcher. A decade later, he decided to fly with his own wings by founding his own company, “Synaptic Machines”, that brought together his interests in sciences, his drive to share it with the world, and his passion and talent for music. Why not make a living with what one truly loves!

This coincided with the realisation that he was a damn good teacher. To support financially his bran new company, he started tutoring a few kids in their late teens to prepare for their I... See full profile
