1.6.3 The acceleration due to gravity
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.

The Large Hadron Collider, the moon and some space scientists' heroes of science
In this physics and astronomy episode we chat to Dr Tara Shears just before the LHC was switched on in September 2008; catch up with two space scientists to find out about their heroes of science; and eavesdrop on a fascinating conversation between Dr Dave Rothery and Dr Mahesh Anand about the moon. The interviews are recorded by OU staff and the programme is hosted by Dr Mike Bullivant from the OU/BBC television series Rough Science.

Physics Games: Liquid Crystals
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! A liquid crystal is a substance that flows like a liquid but maintains some of the ordered structure characteristic of crystals. In the 1960s, a French theoretical physicist, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes turned his interest to liquid crystals and soon found fascinating analogies between liquid crystals and superconductors as well as magnetic materials. His work would later be rewarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics 1991. Today,

Accuracy of Series Approximations
In physics and mathematics, series expansions to approximate functions are often used because using the exact solution is either impossible or involves unnecessary complicated calculations. This Demonstration shows accuracy for a series of expansions and how adding terms increases that accuracy moving away from the origin.
