I’m a big fan of the “Wonders” series by Professor Brian Cox. I think that they are great, seminal works explaining various concepts in physics, but what with the exotic locations and use of expensive equipment, they must have cost a pretty penny to produce. Would it be possible to show examples of physical phenomena on a shoestring? I think it is, here are a few examples.
1. Centrifugation (without the need of an expensive centrifuge designed to test the endurance of jet pilots):
2. Zero Gravity (without getting in a Zero G plane)
3. Chaos theory (I know this is a bit of a stretch, but it’s an excuse to show a video of someone throwing a brick in a washing machine):
4. Newton’s third law of motion (To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction)
PS Sorry, for the lack of blog updates recently, been really busy with other stuff!
