Dropping a Ball from 2.0 Meters - An Introductory Free-Fall Acceleration Problem
In this introductory free-fall acceleration problem we analyze a video of a medicine ball being dropped to determine the final velocity and the time in free-fall. Included are three common mistakes students make. "Why include mistakes?" you might ask. Well, it is important to understand what happens when you make mistakes so that you can recognize them in the future. There is also brief description of "parallax" and how it affects what you see in the video compared to rea
The Drop and Upward Throw of a Ball are Very Similar
Previously we determined the motion graphs for dropping a ball from 2.0 meters and throwing a ball up to 2.0 meters and catching it again. In this video I show that the reverse of the drop coupled with the drop itself is the same thing as throwing the ball upward. Make sense? Okay, watch the video.

This three minute video explains how a slave ship captain, such as Luke Collingswood, had the power to do whatever was necessary to maintain control, while bringing ships of slaves across the ocean for trade. This video shows how the British people finally found out what the slave ships was like and those that testified against it, including a clergyman who was once a slave captain and later wrote Amazing Grace, John Newton.
Relationships and the Internet
This forum looks at the state of the art of academic research on relationships and the Internet and how this research informs research on the social aspects of the Internet in general, such as issues of trust and identity. Research on the role of the Internet in meeting new people is an increasingly vital area of inquiry, and is illustrated by a burgeoning literature on such topics as online dating. However, the Internet may shape many other aspects of relationships beyond introducing individual

This course provides an introduction to the vast literature devoted to public opinion. In the next 12 weeks, we will survey the major theoretical approaches and empirical research in the field of political behavior (though we will only tangentially discuss political participation and voting).

7.343 The Radical Consequences of Respiration: Reactive Oxygen Species in Aging and Disease (MIT)
This course will start with a survey of basic oxygen radical biochemistry followed by a discussion of the mechanisms of action of cellular as well as dietary antioxidants. After considering the normal physiological roles of oxidants, we will examine the effects of elevated ROS and a failure of cellular redox capacity on the rate of organismal and cellular aging as well as on the onset and progression of several major diseases that are often age-related. Topics will include ROS-induced effec
