Climate Change in Antarctica
Adam Soule from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution talks about his volcano research and how Antarctica is sensitive to climate change. As a volcanologist, he will study the lava flows of the past, an important process in an actively evolving planet such as Earth. The products of volcanic eruptions cover more than 2/3's of the Earth's surface and are primary means for transferring heat and mass from the Earth's interior.

States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas
In this program matter is discussed as anything that has mass or takes up space. Three of the recognized five states of Matter are solid, liquid and gas. (The other two are plasma and Bose-Einstein concentrates) As different forces are applied to matter, like heat, matter can change from one form to another: solid to liquid, liquid to gas, or solid to gas. Show Me Science: States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas describes what happens to matter at boiling, melting, freezing, and dew points. The

Conservation of Momentum

If The Mechanical Universe is a perpetual clock, what keeps it ticking away till the end of time? Taking a cue from Descartes, momentum -- the product of mass and velocity -- is always conserved. Newton's laws embody the concept of conservation and momentum. This law provides a powerful principle for analyzing collisions, even at the local pool hall.

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
