‘An Insurance Scam’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. Each group will work in a couple of pairs, each pair performing some experiments and then sharing their findings with the other. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although some rational thinking may be required

Core Physics PBL – Sugar Capacity.

‘Sugar Capacity’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course books (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler and Mathematical Physics Vol2) although some rational thinking may be required to extend this knowledge or apply it to an area not yet understood by students.
Students will have f

Describing motion along a line

Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.

Introductory Physics II

Welcome to the NROC Introductory Physics course. This course is divided into two semesters and is designed to acquaint you with topics in classical and modern physics. The first semester discusses topics in Newtonian mechanics including: kinematics, laws of motion, work and energy, systems of particles, momentum, circular motion, oscillations, and gravitation. The first semester concludes with topics in fluid mechanics, thermal physics, and kinetic theory. The second semester discusses the topic

The Solid Earth - Environmental Science

A professor (Dr. Pal Tackley) Department of Earth Science at UCLA narrates how the solid interior of the earth affects the outer layer through mountain ranges, volcanoes and plate tectonics. The speaker uses a lecture format but the video has good photographs of the processes. Run time 02:54.

Physics in architecture

Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Condensed matter

In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep

This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites

TALAT Lecture 4701: Terms and Definitions for Adhesive Bonding

This lecture defines the terms and definition of adhesive bonding of metals; it describes the basic physical/chemical characteristics of adhesive bonding; it also describes the characteristics and the properties of adhesives used in metal bonding. General background in production engineering and material science, some knowledge of the physics and chemistry of metallic surfaces and polymer science is assumed.

Romesco Sauce

Recipe at: http://www.ciaprochef.com/canola/recipe2.html
CIA Chef Tucker Bunch prepares a classic Spanish sauce, romesco. Romesco is a blend of roasted red peppers, roasted tomatoes, dried chiles, almonds, and bread soaked in canola oil. This sauce is delicious spread over bread or used as a dipping sauce for fried artichokes.

Math Snaks-Number Rights (Fractions and Decimals)

This middle school oriented video addresses decimals and fractions on the number line. 1/4 calls for all numbers to stand up for their rights as numbers on the number line. This is a great resource to help middle school students master these important skills. (3:19)

12.581 Phase Transitions in the Earth's Interior (MIT)

This course discusses phase transitions in Earth's interior. Phase transitions in Earth materials at high pressures and temperatures cause the seismic discontinuities and affect the convections in the Earth's interior. On the other hand, they enable us to constrain temperature and chemical compositions in the Earth's interior. However, among many known phase transitions in mineral physics, only a few have been investigated in seismology and geodynamics. This course reviews important papers about
