You have a pretty good physics teacher, especially to put that much effort into what he does.

I like Ramamurti Shankar's lectures from Yale on University Physics I and II. They cover every topic in most universities Physics I and II w/ calculus course.

I haven't been able to find any other Physics II (intro to EM, gauss law, that sort of thing) videos online.


Those Feynman lectures (the one from MS and the one above are the same series) are great, but you probably won't learn anything that will be helpful in a class. If you pick up the Feynman Lectures on Physics 3 book set, it's basically a transcription of those lectures, only with actual mathematics. Worth every penny for a 1st/2nd year phy/eng/math major. You're library probably has them too.


I'm currently watching Gilbert Strang's Linear Algebra lectures on OCW.MIT
While they aren't nearly as fantastic as Walter Lewin, or that guy who does their calculus 1-2 lectures (not the french guy that does the calc III!), it's still a really good resource to casually watch and better familiarize yourself.

Anything Neil Degrasse Tyson. While you won't learn any specifics and it won't help you in any classes, it's still wonderful to see somebody that passionate and involved in science becoming a media giant and effectively spreading scientific literacy.

and Leonard Susskind's lectures from Stanford I lke most of all.
Unfortunately, I can't understand Leonard Susskind's strong accent.

Feynman's videos are a great source of inspiration for pursuing physics. MIT OCW is also helpful for learning particular subject matters.

Goes through some very basic concept but there is a lot of good and interesting stuff in these lectures.

I also love his teaching style.

My favourite is the 3rd part 'quantum leap'

He assigns them as homework then we practice stuff in class.

I checked out a couple videos from the above links... not sure I'm ready for that stuff yet...

Your teacher is really good...

wow, I was surprised that professor Balakrishnan has only been mentioned one time in this thread.

In my opinion this guy and his way of teaching is far superior to both Walter Lewin and Susskind. Here's a link to his series on classical mechanics:

is there any good videos for these topics :

-Einstein Summation Convention
-Analyctical Geometry in 3d
-Vector Functions
-Path Integrals
(Integral Theorems)
a)Green Theorem
b)Divergence Theorem
c)Stokes Theorem
-Gama Functions

I totally do not understand the what is the relationship between these topics.It's applied science topics,but it seems to me very abstract.

Edit : I have found ;

I simply found path integral videos by searching them on Youtube. I was suprised to see them. I'm sure you can just find all of these topics at a hardcore level on youtube.

Paul Dirac himself explaining Quantum Mechanics. Poor visual quality on parts, but no one explains his work better then himself.
