Crash Course Physics


  • Kinetic Theory | Crash Course Physics

    How the heck 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, Shini talks to us about sea level, kinetic theory, and phase changes.

  • The Physics of Heat | Crash Course Physics

    Have you ever wondered why we wear clothes? I mean, beyond the obvious. Why does wearing a jacket in the cold keep your warmer? What is happening to all the heat inside your body? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks about the Physics of heat!

  • Thermodynamics | Crash Course Physics

    Have you ever heard of a Perpetual Motion Machine? More to the point, have you ever heard of why Perpetual Motion Machines are impossible? One of the reasons is because of the first law of thermodynamics!

  • Engines | Crash Course Physics

    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, Shini talks to us about how engines work, what makes them efficient, and why they're pretty cool.

  • Electric Fields | Crash Course Physics

    As we learn more about electricity, we have to talk about fields. Electric fields may seem complicated, but they're really fascinating and a crucial part of physics.

  • Electric Charge | Crash Course Physics

    Moving on to our unit on the Physics of Electricity, it's time to talk about charge. What is charge? Is there a positive and negative charge? What do those things mean?

  • Electric Current | Crash Course Physics

    Electric current works like a river... kinda... Instead of flowing based on elevation, electric current works a little differently. But it's a good metaphor. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about electric current, voltaic cells, and how we get electric charge.

  • Voltage & Capacitors | Crash Course Physics

    So, how do those defibrillators you see on TV actually work? Surprise! Physics can explain! Okay buckle up, everyone! Today, Shini has the task of breaking down Electrical Potential Energy, Electric Potential, Voltage, Capacitors, Energy Storage, and Potential Energy... it's a lot!

  • Resistors & Batteries | Crash Course Physics

    Batteries power much of your daily life, so today we're going to talk about how they work. We're also explaining how terminal voltage results from the natural internal resistance of every real battery.

    Grades: 6-12
  • Circuit Analysis | Crash Course Physics

    In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini walks us through the differences between series and parallel circuits and how that makes Christmas lights work the way they work.
