__Physics for Teenagers__

This course of Physics for Teenagers is intended for those students and

teachers interested in the fundamental laws of the classical Physics as

it stood before Theory of Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and other new

developments were introduced.

The emphasis of the course is on physical laws expressed in mathematical

form, bringing theoretical precision into a focus, rather then

practical aspects of physical characteristics. It is extremely

important, therefore, to be familiar with mathematical apparatus used in

theoretical Physics, and, as an example, we can refer students to a

course of "Math 4 Teens" on this site UNIZOR.COM.

The main educational material for this course is "Textbook of Elementary

Physics" by Landsberg (in three volumes). This textbook was written in

Russian and translated to other languages, including English. It

presents a concise description of all major physical laws on solid

theoretical foundation.

It should be noted that solid mathematical foundation of this course is

its main characteristic. That's why it's very important to be at ease

with broad spectrum of Calculus concepts - derivatives, integrals,

differential equations etc. - all presented in sufficient details in the

course "Math 4 Teens" mentioned above.

Considering the limitations of this Internet-based classroom, we will

not be able to present real experiments to prove certain physical

properties, but sufficient discussion and description of such

experiments will be presented to explain their results.

We do not think this lack of experimental basis should discourage

students. After all, Einstein came up with his Theory of Relativity

using only logic, and the planet Pluto was discovered by performing

calculations, not by looking in the telescope.

This course is divided in the following sections:

Mechanics,

Energy,

Electricity,

Magnetism,

Waves,

Optics,

Atoms.

This course of Physics for Teenagers is a work in progress. We started

it in 2018 and will gradually fill with lectures, notes and exams. If

you see that some sections are missing, please be patient, they will be

ready in the coming months.
