The Second Law of Thermodynamics (cont.) and Entropy

The Second Law of Thermodynamics (cont.) and Entropy: The focus of the lecture is the concept of entropy. Specific examples are given to calculate the entropy change for a number of different processes. Boltzmann&#8217;s microscopic formula for entropy is introduced and used to explain irreversibility.

Simple Harmonic Motion (cont.) and Introduction to Waves

Simple Harmonic Motion (cont.) and Introduction to Waves: This lecture continues the topic of harmonic motions. Problems are introduced and solved to explore various aspects of oscillation. The second half of the lecture is an introduction to the nature and behavior of waves. Both longitudinal and transverse waves are defined and explained.

Newton&#8217;s Laws (cont.) and Inclined Planes

Newton&#8217;s Laws (cont.) and Inclined Planes: The lecture begins with the application of Newton&#8217;s three laws, with the warning that they are not valid for objects that move at speeds comparable to the speed of light or objects that are incredibly small and of the atomic scale. Friction and static friction are discussed. The dreaded inclined plane is dealt with head on. Finally, Professor Shankar explains the motion of objects using Newton&#8217;s laws in specific problems related to objects in circular motion, such as roller coasters and a planet orbiting the Sun.
