Professor Lewin is an international webstar. He is well-known at MIT and beyond for his dynamic, inspiring and engaging lecture style. His courses are also among the most downloaded at iTunes U. 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics explains the basic concepts of Newtonian mechanics, fluid mechanics, and kinetic gas theory, and a variety of interesting topics such as binary stars, neutron stars, and black holes.

Lewin's demonstrations make difficult concepts easier to understand. Stanley, a doctor in the US, says, "I had this information presented to me in 1962 while pursuing my medical career. It was never so clearly presented as it was by the witty genius. Please thank [Professor Lewin] from an old student and tell him that he has truly presented the beauty of physics to me."

Hello Professor Lewin,

I am a high school teacher and engineering student. I like very much your teaching style on the internet. You dominate the physics concepts and make them understandable to newcomers in the field of science and technology. Do you know something and would you understand that I have made several inventions that are dependent of the laws of physics that I did not know before. I am learning them now. Isn't it amazing? Could you guide me through the physics' world? I really like your attitude.
