Welcome to JoVE Science Education, the revolutionary video database dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations.
In this first entry into the physical sciences, JoVE Science Education covers classical mechanics and thermodynamics - subjects typically taught in first semester physics. In addition to discussing relevant laws and equations, this collection explores concepts like vector addition, vector subtraction, and free-body diagrams. Each video explains the topic’s major principles, demonstrates an experiment that validates theoretical hypotheses, and lastly, provides real-world contextual examples in research and everyday life.
In this second installment of JoVE Science Education Physics, JoVE explores second semester physics topics, which include electrostatics, magnetism, optics, and wave-based oscillations. In addition, these videos delve into electrical circuits and their many vital components, like capacitors, resistors, and inductors. Finally, the collection endeavors to demystify the underlying principles behind physical phenomena that have changed our world, such as the Doppler and photoelectric effects. After all, if not for the discovery of the photoelectric effect and the advent of the semiconductor, JoVE would not be able to document essential science with video cameras!
