Through the use of an experiment, PBS Learning Media videos, and interactives, students will learn how heat is transferred through convection, radiation, and conduction. Students will develop a model to demonstrate their understanding of conduction, convection, and radiation.
In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about temperature and the ideal gas law. Also, we figure out how much air is in your car.
How do we map out a planet without oceans? There's some tricky, yet fascinating science behind all of it. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about sea level, kinetic theory, and phase changes.
Have you ever wondered why we wear clothes? I mean, beyond the obvious. Why does wearing a jacket in the cold keep you warmer? What is happening to all the heat inside your body? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks about the physics of heat.
Have you ever heard of a perpetual motion machine? More to the point, have you ever heard of why perpetual motion machines are impossible? In this video, Dr. Shini discusses the first law of thermodynamics.
One of the greatest inventions is the steam engine. But why? What makes it so useful? And how does it work? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about how engines work, what makes them efficient, and why they're pretty cool.
