video B1: The Big Picture (part 1): The Big Picture. This video develops a concept map that links the various topics covered in mechanics. It is just an overview of the material that will be covered in mechanics. Each of these topics will be covered in much more detail later.

video B2 The Big Picture (part 2): More summarizing of the big picture linking kinematics, newton's laws, energy, and power. Again, more detail for each topic will be covered at a later time.

video B3: The Gravitational Force. This video gives a few different viewpoints of the gravitational force and described by Newton's Law of Universal Gravity.

video B4: Gravitational Potential Energy. This video gives a few different viewpoints of gravitational potential energy. More information on gravitational potential energy will be given in units D and G.

video B5: Gravitational Forces and Energies: This video shows how the universal equations for gravitational force and energy transition into their more simple forms when you are near the earth's surface.
