Causes of Motion
Lecture no. 7 from the course: Physics and Our Universe
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
For most people, the hardest part of learning physics is to stop thinking like Aristotle, who believed that force causes motion. It doesn't. Force causes change in motion. Learn how Galileo's realization of this principle, and Newton's later formulation of his three laws of motion, launched classical physics.
