Astrophysics and Cosmology: Crash Course Physics #46 - In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini sits down to talk about Astrophysics and Cosmology. By using what we've learned this year, we can come to understandings about our universe. Understandings that open ideas to us to help us grasp how our universe works. Join us for this final episode of Crash Course Physics as we head into the final frontier.
Let's talk about astrophysics, cosmology and how our universe works.
Let's talk Einstein and Nuclear Physics. What does E=MC2 actually mean? Why is it useful?
Why is e=mc2 such a big deal? And what about this grumpy cat in a box and probability?
Shini introduces the idea of Quantum Mechanics and how it helps us understand light.
We've all heard of relativity, but what is it? How does it relate to light and motion?
Shini talks to us about optical instruments and how they make magnification possible.
We've learned about light and how to bend it to our will. But what can we LEARN from it?
Light's behavior seems counterintuitive. That is, until you figure out light is a wave.
Sunlight, moonlight, torchlight... They all work the same. Let's talk about light!
Maxwell's Equations tell us a lot about electromagnetic interactions and physics.
We've talked about how AC circuits change voltage, but let's take a deeper look.
Getting power at home is pretty amazing – and much more complicated than it may seem.
Megneto helps Shini explain how induction works and why magnetism seems so complicated.
Ampère was playing with wires when he discovered a fundamental law of electromagnetism.
In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini takes us into the world of magnetism!
Our last go-round inside a DC circuit! We’ll encounter junctions, loops, and capacitors!
What do series and parallel circuits have to do with Christmas lights?
Batteries power much of your daily life, so today we're going to explore how they work.
Shini explores electric current, voltaic cells, and how we get electric charge.
How do those defibrillators you see on TV actually work? Surprise! Physics can explain!
As we learn more about electricity, we have to talk about fields.
Moving on to our unit on the Physics of Electricity, it's time to talk about charge.
One of the greatest inventions is the steam engine. But why?
In this episode of Crash Course Physics, we explore thermodynamics and entropy.
Why does wearing a jacket in the cold keep your warmer?
In this episode, Shini explores sea level, kinetic theory, and phase changes.
In this episode of Crash Course, Shini talks about temperature and the ideal gas law.
Music plays a big part in many of our lives, but how does it work?
The more we learn about waves, the more we learn about a lot of things in physics.
Bridges... bridges, bridges, bridges.
We continue our exploration of fluids and fluid dynamics.
Shini is very excited to start talking about Fluids.
Statics is the study of objects when they're NOT accelerating.
You may have herd about "Torque" in passing, but what is it really?
Did you know that, at a certain point on a moving wheel... there's no motion?
A big part of physics is understanding collisions and how they're not all the same.
When you hear the word "Work" what is the first thing you think of?
Shini sits down to talk about how Newtonian Gravity is more than a little important.
Did you know that centrifugal force isn't really a thing?
In today's episode, Shini tells us about Static and Kinetic friction.
I'm sure you've heard of Isaac Newton and maybe of some of his laws.
Today we continue on our journey of understanding motion, direction, and velocity.
Shini introduces us to integrals, and how they're critical to studying physics.
Shini talks us through derivatives and how calculus helps us to understand the world.
Shini Somara introduces us to the ideas of motion in a straight line.
