Electric Fields: Crash Course Physics #26

Electric Fields: Crash Course Physics #26

Last time, we talked about how charged particles exert electrostatic forces on one another. We calculated these forces using the charge of each particle: which can be either positive or negative, and the distance between them, and we did it with the help of Coulomb’s Law: the equation that tells us the force generated by […]

Capacitors and Kirchhoff: Crash Course Physics #31

This episode is supported by Prudential. By now, thanks to our lesson on circuit analysis – and previous Crash Course Physics episodes – you know your way around a basic DC circuit. You’ve learned how to simplify circuits with resistors connected in series and parallel with a single battery source, which is great! But a […]

What’s the Physics Behind Texting?

What’s the Physics Behind Texting?

You probably send a bunch of texts everyday. But when you hit send, what happens? How does your message make its way across the room or to the other side of the world, to someone else’s phone? I’m Greg, and What The Physics?! To send a message out of your phone, electricity from your battery […]

How Does FORCE LIGHTNING Work? (Star Wars SCIENCE)

How Does FORCE LIGHTNING Work? (Star Wars SCIENCE)

– This episode of Because Science is sponsored by Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Because no one’s ever really gone, how might Force lightning work? Let’s get technical. (maniacal laughing) (upbeat music) Jedi and Sith are the superheroes of the Star Wars-iverse. They can sense the future, they can become ghosts apparently and they can […]

The science and controversy behind your lightbulbs

The science and controversy behind your lightbulbs

(gentle music) – You might have noticed that light bulbs have gotten more complicated. Light bulb technology has exploded in the past few years. There are incandescents, fluorescents, LEDs, it’s a lot. New bulbs are more energy-efficient than they ever were before, and they’re even getting smarter. But now, all of a sudden, some of […]

DC Resistors & Batteries: Crash Course Physics #29

DC Resistors & Batteries: Crash Course Physics #29

This episode is supported by Prudential. Resistors, batteries, and capacitors – these are just a few of the tools you use to build circuits, and provide power to the world around us. Today, we’re going to build some basic circuits out of resistors and batteries to figure out how they react and change, depending on […]

You Don’t Have To Be a Rocket Scientist To Be a Futurist | Harry Hamlin | TEDxLA

Translator: Ellen Maloney Reviewer: Mile Živković I am not a rocket scientist. [The sexiest man alive] (Cheers) (Applause) But my father was. Now I am mainly known as a mature stage-television-film actor, who’s had a pretty good run, from vanquishing the Kraken in Clash of the Titans, to winning a bunch of kooky cases in […]
