Advanced Audio Blog S3 #8 - The Job of an Architecture Explorer
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! At the cocktail party in Japan, your friend tells you in Japanese, “You have to come meet this person. He is fascinating.” You inquire in Japanese, “Who is he?” Your friend replies in Japanese, “He’s an artist.” You tell your friend in Japanese, “Oh, artists bore me. They’re all starving and [...]
Valpo Physics Preview
An inside look at Valparaiso University's Physics and Astronomy Department, its resources and student experiences.
Fastcar: The Physics of Racing Part 1
This video is to assist 5-7 graders with the concepts of physics using auto racing to illustrate the concepts. This is part 1 of 2. The video hits many points and might be a good review for students. Run time 08:30.
Fastcar: The Physics of Racing Part 2
This is a video to assist 5-7 graders in understanding the concepts of physics. It uses auto racing to illustrate the ideas. The video hits many different points and might be a good review for older students. Run time 07:49.
What is Physics?
"Everything we do and use is governed by the laws of Physics." This clip provides an introduction to Physics.
Physics in Action: Resonance
Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates resonance in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics in Action series. The video uses lecture format and demonstrations to aid in the explanation of resonance and frequency. Run time 04:59.
Physics is Fun to Imagine
In this archival footage from BBC TV, celebrated physicist Richard Feynman explains what fire, magnets, rubber bands (and more) are like at the scale of the jiggling atoms they're made of. This accessible, enchanting conversation in physics reveals a teeming nano-world that's just plain fun to imagine. Run time 07:06.
What is Architecture?
Architecture in its broadest sense. It describes that a sense of principles to create an object is the broadest defination of the word. (1:25)
What is Architecture?
A short video that explains the basics or principles of architecture. It is rather vague and does not really give enough examples to help younger students. But for older students, this is a good starting point.
Physics & Electromagnetism : Surface Conditions on Neptune
The surface of Neptune isn't very solid, being a gas giant, and the surface temperature is -225 degrees Celsius. Learn about the atmosphere of Neptune, which is made of hydrogen, helium and methane, with help from science teacher, Steve Jones, on planetary science.
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 program examines isomers and how the electronic structure of a molecule's elements and bonds affects its shape and physical properties. This video explores how molecules with the same numbers and kinds of atoms with very diverse shapes can be very different in properties.
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.
The Innovation of Aztec Architecture
The great civilization of the Aztecs built phenomenal structures, including temples, shrines, and causeways. Development in the area of architecture was affected equally by both the implications of the time period and their religion. Suitable for high school students. (Note-- Educators/Parents: Documentary speaks of human sacrifice.)
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
