4 Maxwell's equations
James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is arguably the father of electromagnetism, and unarguably one of the greatest physicists ever. Einstein called Maxwell's equations 'the most important event in physics since Newton's time, not only because of their wealth of content, but also because they form a pattern for a new type of law'. This unit will examine Maxwell's greatest triumph, the prediction that electromagnetic waves can propagate vast distances through empty space and the realisation that light

Activity 26

Mainstream photographers, as we have seen, identified with traditions in the fine arts and aspirations of refinement and moral improvement. However, fairground and seaside operators exploited photography as a form of cheap popular entertainment. This and the fact that itinerants usually worked on spec rather than to commission ensured that they were generally viewed with contempt by the photographic establishment.

Contempt pervades the article entitled ‘Five minutes in a photogra

The Slave Ship: A Human History
This one-and-a-half hour lecture by Dr. Marcus Rediker is about the British slave trade and why it was considered essential to English prosperity. " British ships carried manufactured goods to West Africa, where they were exchanged with local rulers for slaves. Hundreds of these slaves were packed into the ships and carried to the West Indies -- the so-called "middle passage" -- where they were sold and the proceeds used to buy goods the ships then transported back to England.

Models of Design Requirement
Case studies show that significant proportions of design errors and failures are linked to poor requirement specification during both early stages of design and as changes occur. Computational requirements engineering as a front-end to design iterations is a promising area addressing theseproblems. In other design disciplines, such as in software engineering, requirement engineering has given significant product improvements. In this paper, we present a state-space representation of requirement

Mount Tempura: Potential Volcanic Eruption Analysis
This three minute shows how scientist think that Mount Tempura will throw so much ash into the air when it erupted that it could change the earth's climate. Yellowstone National Park is a huge volcano that
explodes every 600,000 years. The last time it blew was 640,000 years ago. This is a good video to show students to show how volcanic eruptions impact the Earth.

Movement of Blood cells (view at the cellular level)
The circulatory system of humans is closed, meaning that blood is enclosed by blood vessels. This image is that of an open system, meaning the blood moves freely throughout the body. In both systems, blood is pumped to the tissues of the body and then nutrients diffuse into the cells of those tissues.
