Minute Physics Lessons
Videos for Engineers

Minute Physics Lessons - RF CafeEven if you have taken some pretty intense physics courses in college, this series of short videos (a minute long) will really appeal to you. In a mesmerizingly primal manner, the lessons are conducted with a voice narrating while a hand draws simple diagrams to compliment the story. I am amazed to witness how consistently each concept is presented in utter simplicity - sort of a validation of Occam's razor. The first one I watched was on the speed of light in glass, and why frequency stays the same even though the speed of light is lower in glass. The explanation of distance measurement according to Special Relativity might surprise you from a time perspective that you hadn't considered before. Check out similarly creative lessons on the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, the arrow of time, Schrödinger's Cat, and many more.
