The Physics of Basketball
How does physics impact basketball. This video shows how foul shots and passes are impacted by spin forces acting on the ball, and what players have to do to correct for these forces. Poor photography mars video, but makes for an interesting topic for students to learn about in applying science in a way that probably have not thought about previously.
The Physics of Pulleys
The science of how the forces on pulleys sort themselves out. English captions are at the bottom of the screen. The words are small so the viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen'.
Physics with Mr. Noon: Electric Current, Part 1
This was filmed inside a class room and the camera is a little shaky. Here are some high school physics demonstrations dealing with current electricity.
Physics with Mr. Noon: Electric Current, Part 2
The instructor gives more classroom demonstrations dealing with electric current, voltage, resistance, and Ohm's Law. The classroom is dark because the instructor is using a projector in a darkened room.
Physics - First Motion Law
Newton's First Law of Motion - an object in motion will remain in motion, with constant velocity, and an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force. (01:17) This is a short clip from a larger segment.
What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics
This is a teacher-created slideshow (33 slides) that is an overview of Quantum Physics.
Physics in Action: Musical Instruments and Waveforms
Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates musical instruments and waveforms in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics in Action series. The video uses lecture format and demonstrations to aid in the explanation of waves. Run time 04:53.
Physics of Baseball
In this talk, Dr. Porter W. Johnson from Northwestern University discusses the application of physical principles to baseball as well as dynamical issues in pitching, hitting, fielding, and running. Run time 1:23:30
The String Instrument VIPER Teaches about Physics
In this video, musician Mark Wood from the Transiberian Orchestra helps a high school physics teacher give a lesson about sound. The viper has seven strings, some thin and some heavy. The teacher explains that the mass to length ratio for the heavy strings will produce a lower frequency while the mass to length ratio for the thin strings produce a higher frequency. As he explains (and measures) the various strings, Mark demonstrates by playing the instrument. He also explains that half of the
Physics Nuclear fission E=mc²
Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts, often producing free neutrons and lighter nuclei, which may eventually produce photons (in the form of gamma rays). Fission of heavy elements is an exothermic reaction which can release large amounts of energy both as electromagnetic radiation and as kinetic energy of the fragments (heating the bulk material where fission takes place). Fission is a form of nuclear transmutation because the resu
So you want to be an architect - Part 1 of 7
Part 1 in a seven part series where we learn how the architect invents by creating something of new utility. What does an architect do? What is an architect? All are explored in this video.(3:54)
Part 2-What does an architect make?
This is lesson two on what does an architect make. It explores all the avenues of what architects make. References made to famous people. (3:46)
So you want to be an architect - Part 3-What does an architect learn?
So you want to be an Architect is a seven part series about the profession of the architect. This is part 3, What does an Architect learn? A great tool for learning about the field of architecture.
What Does an Architect Use?
So you want to be an architect, Part 4. What does an architect use? This is a great introduction to the tools that an architect uses. Anyone interested in learning about the field of architecture should view this video.
So you want to be an architect - Part 6 - What Does an Architect Mean?
This is so you want to be an architect - part 6. What does an architect mean? This video explores the meaning behind many different kinds of architecture, and how you can create meaning through your design.
So you want to be an architect - Part 7
This is Part 7, and the final episode of So you Want to be an Architect. Architecture like many things is about many things and in this final part, an architect speaks to you about all of the different things that you may need to do to enter the field of architecture. (3:45)
What does an Architect Ask?- Part 5
This is so you want to be an architect - part 5. What does an architect ask? This video answers the question- "Where do I start when I design something?" Who, what when, why are questions to ask to get parameters to start design. (4:06)
Answer: With the advent of modern physics, have there been any changes in chemistry?
Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 1996, has answered a selection of your video and text questions from YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. This answer is in response to a question from ag9barca.
