Mass - Sixty Symbols
What is mass and where does it come from? Video explains mass, inertia mass of an object, and what causes mass.  There are many things about mass which we don’t know.  Mass has two definitions, one is gravity, the more massive an object is the more massive the gravity.  The second is how much something doesn’t like to be pushed around.  So, the higher the mass the more you have to push it.  The video also gives examples to these two defin

Cold War: Afghanistan - part 1/5
1975 - 1988 Afghanistan is a war that cost the lives of almost 15,000 Soviet conscripts and an estimated one million Afghans. The United States supplied billions of dollars of weapons to unlikely allies - Islamic fundamentalists. The result is a Vietnam-style conflict which takes its toll on the Soviets and hastens the end of the Cold War.

Earth's Mass Extinctions
Asteroid strikes get all the coverage, but "Medea Hypothesis" author Peter Ward argues that most of Earth's mass extinctions were caused by lowly bacteria. The culprit, a poison called hydrogen sulfide, may have an interesting application in medicine. Ward explores what is needed for life to form and be maintained on a planet.

Atoms and Molecules
This video is accompanied by text: "...An atom is the fundamental unit of chemical matter. The nucleus is an atom's center of mass and center of positive charge. The nucleus contains positively charged protons, shown in white, and uncharged neutrons, shown in blue. A cloud of negatively charged particles called electrons surrounds the nucleus.
All atoms of a given element have the same number of protons, but the number of neutrons can vary. Isotopes are atoms of the same element with diff

Weather Fronts
This video discusses what a front is. They start with an air mass and the transitional zone is called a front. It is hard to tell if it is a cold or warm front. If the warm air is advancing it is a warm front. This video show the symbols that are used by meterologists. It shows how one mass moves over another mass. This is a good, basic video.

The Mole

Using Avogadro's law, the mass of a substance can be related to the number of particles contained in that mass. Chemists have learned how to count molecules by weighing macroscopic amounts. Chemists must measure precise amounts for reactions to occur in an accurate manner. Analytical data and masses from the atomic chart are used to determine the number of atoms in a

Against All Odds - Describing Relationships
'Segments describe how to use a scatterplot to display relationships between variables. Patterns in variables (positive, negative, and linear association) and the importance of outliers are discussed. The program also calculates the least squares regression line of metabolic rate y on lean body mass x for a group of subjects and examines the fit of the regression line by plotting residuals.'

Mass Wasting
Anyone undertaking a building project must understand mass wasting — the downslope movement of earth under the influence of gravity. Various factors in mass wasting, including the rock’s effective strength and pore spaces, are discussed, as are different types of mass wasting such as creep, slump, and landslides. Images of an actual landslide illustrate the phenomeno
