Physics + Python: Solve physics problems with Python

Learn how to use the popular programming language Python to solve problems of physics

Hi! This course is destined for those who want to model problems of physics computationally. In this course, we will use one of the most popular programming language: Python! Python is a programming language used in different fields, such as data science, statistics, artificial inteligence, and also scientific computing. In this course, we will model high-school level problems of physics with Python using basic commands, data structures and functions. At the end of the course, you will have a brief introduction to two third-party libraries of Python: 1-Numpy, whoch is primarily used for number crunching and linear algebra, and 2-Matplotlib, the most commonly used library to plot data in Python.

What you’ll learn

  • You’ll learn how to model problems of physics computationlly.
  • You’ll develop algorithmic thinking.
  • You’ll review some concepts of physics.
  • You’ll learn one of the most popular programming languages.

Each session of the course is divided into three parts:

1-Basic Python lectures:

In these lessons, you will learn how to use the basic commands, data structures and fucntions of Python

2-Exercises:

In these lessons, I propose exercises to be solved and explain how these exercises are supposed to be solved

3-Solution:

In these videos, I show the solution of the exercises step-by-step

Throughout this course, you’ll solve 20+ exercises to model problems of physics with Python, including:

  • Calculating the force
  • Gravitational force formula
  • Text manipulation with strings
  • Thermal expansion formulas
  • Solving a quadratic equation
  • Building a menu to choose formulas
  • Calculating the euclidean distance between two atoms
  • Simulating a physics exam
  • Creating functions for temperature conversion
  • Plotting the trajectory of an object

and many more!!

 

Therefore: if you desire to model problems of physics and learn of the most popular programming languages, then this course is for you!
