  • Motion in a Straight Line: Crash Course Physics #1

    In this, THE FIRST EPISODE of Crash Course Physics, your host Dr. Shini Somara introduces us to the ideas of motion in a straight line. She talks about displacement, acceleration, time, velocity, and the definition of acceleration. Also, how does a physicist discuss speed as opposed to a police officer? And did you deserve that ticket? You can figure it all out with the help of Physics!

  • Derivatives: Crash Course Physics #2

    CALCULUS! Today we take our first steps into the language of Physics; mathematics. Every branch of science has its own way to describe the things that it investigates. And, with Physics, that's math. In this episode, Shini talks us through derivatives and how calculus helps us to understand the world around us.

  • Integrals: Crash Course Physics #3

    Continuing with last week's introduction of calculus, Shini leads us through the ways that integrals can help us figure out things like distance when we have several other key bits of information. Say, for instance, you wanted to know how far your window was off the ground. By using integrals, a tennis ball, and a stop watch, you can figure that out! It's all here in this episode of Crash Course Physics!

  • Friction: Crash Course Physics #6

    This episode is sponsored by Audible. Try Audible: http://audible.com/crashcourse

    Why is it hard to move a heavy bookcase across a carpeted floor? And why is it easier to keep it moving than it was to get it started moving? You might think it's all about weight, but actually it's about friction. Two kinds of friction! In today's episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini Somara tells us about Static and Kinetic friction; how they work and how they're different.

    I'm sure you've all heard about Isaac Newton and that apple that fell on his head and how that was a huge deal to our understanding of gravity. Well... let's talk about that. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini sits down to talk about the realities of the apple story and how Newtonian Gravity is more than a little important.

    COLLISIONS! A big part of physics is understanding collisions and how they're not all the same. Mass, momentum, and many other things dictate how collisions can be unique. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini sits down to lead us through an understanding of collisions. Plus, she brings a long our old friend Sir Isaac Newton.

    The Physics we're talking about today has saved your life! Whenever you walk across a bridge or lean on a building, Statics are at work. Statics is the study of objects when they're NOT accelerating. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about stretching, compressing, and springing as they relate to Statics! Also... Game of Thrones.

    In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini is very excited to start talking about Fluids. You see, she's a Fluid Dynamicist and Mechanical Engineer, so fluids are really important to her. Actually they're really important to anyone studying physics. So, let's start down this path of understanding, not only how fluids work, but what they are!

    Today, we continue our exploration of fluids and fluid dynamics. How do fluids act when they're in motion? How does pressure in different places change water flow? And what is one of the motion annoying things about filming outside on a nice day? I'll give you a hint on that last one... it's lawn mowers.

    In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about how Fluids in Motion are really, really, REALLY powerful things.

    Bridges... bridges, bridges, bridges. We talk a lot about bridges in Physics. Why? Because there is A LOT of practical physics that can be learned from the planning and construction of them. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about a particular mistake made in engineering the Millennium Bridge which allows us to talk about simple harmonic motion.

Ropes can tell us a lot about how traveling waves work so, in this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini uses ropes (and animated ropes) to talk about how waves carry energy and how different kinds of waves transmit energy differently.

In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about temperature and the ideal gas law. Also, we figure out how much air is in your car.

What is torque? This is one of those things that you may have heard about in passing but never really understood. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini sits down with us to discuss what torque is, how it works, why it works, and what it all has to do with this thing called "Moment of Inertia."

Statics: Crash Course Physics #13

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: http://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

The Physics we're talking about today has saved your life! Whenever you walk across a bridge or lean on a building, Statics are at work. Statics is the study of objects when they're NOT accelerating. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about stretching, compressing, and springing as they relate to Statics! Also... Game of Thrones.

In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini is very excited to start talking about Fluids. You see, she's a Fluid Dynamicist and Mechanical Engineer, so fluids are really important to her. Actually they're really important to anyone studying physics. So, let's start down this path of understanding, not only how fluids work, but what they are!

Fluids in Motion: Crash Course Physics #15

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: https://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

Today, we continue our exploration of fluids and fluid dynamics. How do fluids act when they're in motion? How does pressure in different places change water flow? And what is one of the motion annoying things about filming outside on a nice day? I'll give you a hint on that last one... it's lawn mowers.

In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about how Fluids in Motion are really, really, REALLY powerful things.

Simple Harmonic Motion: Crash Course Physics #16

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: https://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

Bridges... bridges, bridges, bridges. We talk a lot about bridges in Physics. Why? Because there is A LOT of practical physics that can be learned from the planning and construction of them. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about a particular mistake made in engineering the Millennium Bridge which allows us to talk about simple harmonic motion.

Traveling Waves: Crash Course Physics #17

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: https://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

Waves are cool. The more we learn about waves, the more we learn about a lot of things in physics. Everything from earthquakes to music! Ropes can tell us a lot about how traveling waves work so, in this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini uses ropes (and animated ropes) to talk about how waves carry energy and how different kinds of waves transmit energy differently.

Sound: Crash Course Physics #18

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: https://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

We learn a lot about our surroundings thanks to sound. But... what is it exactly? Sound, that is. What is sound? And how does it travel? And what is this Doppler Effect that we've heard so much about? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini goes over some of the basics (and some of the not so basics) of the Physics of Sound.

The Physics of Music: Crash Course Physics #19

Get Your Crash Course Physics Mug here: https://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-physics-mug

Music plays a big part in many of our lives. Whether you just like to listen or you enjoy playing an instrument, music is powerful. So what is music? How does it work? What are the physics of music? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about how music functions in terms of waves and how these waves interact with our ears.

Bridges. Bridges don't deal well with temperature changes. In order to combat this, engineers have come up with some work arounds that allow bridges to flex as they expand or contract. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about temperature and the ideal gas law. Also, we figure out how much air is in your car.
