Newton’s Second Law of Motion: F = ma

Professor Dave again, I want to tell you about Newton’s second law. We learned about Newton’s first law of motion, which tells us that an object will continue its state of motion unless acted upon by some net force. The

The First Law of Thermodynamics: Internal Energy, Heat, and Work

Professor Dave here, let’s discuss the first law of thermodynamics. The first law of thermodynamics, popularly known as the law of energy conservation, when examined more rigorously actually outlines the relationship between internal energy, work, and heat, which from now

Physics – Universal Law of Gravitation – Part 1

We saw that the gravitational force is the attractive force between any two objects with non-zero mass seperated by a distance. So does the Apple fall towards the Earth or does the Earth move towards the Apple? Or do both

Snell’s law proof using springs

So, in my video with Steve Strogatz about the brachistochrone, we reference this thing called Snell’s Law. It’s the principle in physics that tells you how light bends as it travels from one medium into another, where its speed changes.

There’s a Loophole in One of the Most Important Laws of Physics

[♪ INTRO] When you study physics, they teach you a bunch of rules. Things like how you can’t create energy, you can’t travel faster than light — it’s like, stop telling me what to do, man! These rules are helpful,
