Useful online physics courses

  • The Feynman lectures on phyiscs, made available by Caltech. These lectures provide a beautiful exposition of physics from basic mechanics to quantum theory. The online material here is divided into small chapters, each of which is nicely formatted in html with the equations showing up beautifully.
  • The Physics Hypertextbook. This is a basic online reference book for all basic physics, including several topics in Modern physics.
  • Modern Physics course at UVA (Michael Fowler). This online course has a lot of historical description as well as mathematics. The lecture topics are in the left hand navigation bar.


  • Very useful physics applets from the PhET project at the University of Colorado.
