Probably included in pnaj's list as well, but:

http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Physics/8-01Physics-IFall1999/VideoLectures/index.htm [Broken]
http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Physics/8-02Electricity-and-MagnetismSpring2002/VideoLectures/index.htm [Broken]

These are video lectures on Classical Mechanics and Electromagnetism. They'r really great, because the professor (Walter Lewin) does a great job with showing experiments in class. Very good lectures, but the level is not very deep.

If you're having trouble with Linear Algebra this might be of help, but I wouldn`t watch it for fun (as with the two above), because the lectures are extremely slow-paced.

Feynman lecturing quantum electrodynamics for the layman. Very funny way of explaining with the arrows goin' round. But the quality is a bit bad.

Its more physics than math, but still fun anyhow...

Prof. Lewin's lectures are great!

I didn't study EM, so for me the 8.02 lectures are like gold dust!

And he explains and demonstrates things so well, I got a lot of 'physical' information out of 8.01 as well.

I totally agree. I learned from the lectures on classical mechanics as well (or 8-0-1 as they call it?), because the book I had to use was so terribly bad and my teacher wasn't clear to me either.
Funny thing is, the first time I saw one of his lectures I immediately noticed he had such terrible dutch accent (I`m dutch so I could tell) and later found out that he was indeed dutch.
Too bad the lectures don't go that deep, I would love to see someone give me a clear and deep explanation of Langrangian and Hamiltionian mechanics, because no-one has been able to yet.

The in-class experiments are the best, we never had those in my lectures.

Hey Galileo,

It's funny ... at first, I thought he just had a very strong 'Brooklyn' accent, then I thought maybe German, but realised it couldn't be, otherwise he would pronounce his own name as 'Levin'.

So I guessed Dutch, but whatever, I really like his accent ... I now pronounce 'charge' and 'torque' just like him!

pnaj.

Additive lessons on Mechanics by Professor Lewin

Does anyone know where are located now the lessons on Newtonian Mechanics by Professor Lewin, they are different form those in OCW, they are additive, they were originally in the PiVOT web.

There are some great Quantum Mechanics lecture videos made available by the University of California San Diego at the following sites.
Modern Physics
physicsstream.ucsd.edu/courses/spring2003/physics130a/[/URL]
[PLAIN]physicsstream.ucsd.edu/courses/fall2003/physics130b/[/URL]
[PLAIN]physicsstream.ucsd.edu/courses/winter2004/physics130c/[/URL]

Apart from the "Modern Physics" lectures, others are quicktime streams over rtsp which makes it impossible to download. Since they require high bandwidth for clear viewing, making it impossible for me to get some benefit from them. I really do need them desperately as I am preparing for a graduate level course in Particle Physics. I would be highly grateful if anyone with a broadband connection & little bit of time is willing to capture these videos & upload them for me. I'll provide all the technical details regarding the video caputer & internet space for the upload.

thank you very much - the motion lectures are really good - for me (in high school)

Yeah - those web sites are almost useless ... I wonder if anyone would have any videos on quantum physics?
