"A visually splendid introductory physics course, [this series] combines computer graphics and reenactments of the history of science with introductory lectures by David L. Goodstein of Caltech. This adventure of the mind traces the interaction of ideas from Aristotle to Einstein to explain the theories of Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton." -- Container.
Introduction to the mechanical universe The law of falling bodies ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
Program 1. Introduction to the mechanical universe: This preview enters an Aristotelian world in conflict, introduces the ideas of Copernicus through Newton, and links the physics of the heavens to that of the earth ; Program 2. The law of falling bodies: Galileo's imaginative experiments proved that all bodies fall with the same constant acceleration.
Kepler's three laws ; The Kepler problem ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Program 1. Kepler's three laws: Kepler's three laws described the motion of heavenly bodies with unprecedented accuracy ; Program 2. The Kepler problem: The task of deducing all three of Kepler's laws from Newton's universal law of gravitation is known as the Kepler problem.
Developing language skills ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Discusses the factors which influence language development.
Angular momentum ; Torques and gyroscopes ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
Program 1. Angular momentum: Angular momentum is a twist on momentum - the cross product of the radius vector and momentum ; Program 2. Torques and gyroscopes: When a torque acts on a spinning object the angular momentum changes but the object only precesses - why a spinning top doesn't topple.
Resonance Waves ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
Program 17 explores the phenomenon of resonance and discusses how this phenomenon can be used to explain why a swaying bridge can collapse in a mild wind or why a wineglass can be shattered by a human voice. Program 18 discusses Newton's application of the simple harmonic motion concept to the propagation of sound. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments.
From Kepler to Einstein Harmony of the spheres ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
Program 25 discusses how the law of gravity affects planetary orbits and the tides, Einstein's theory of the curvature of space-time, black holes and beyond. Program 26 presents an overview of the evolution of understanding of the harmony of the spheres and the laws of the mechanical universe. Uses computer animation sequences, historic reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments.
Conservation of momentum ; Harmonic motion ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
Program 1. Conservation of momentum: Newton's laws embody the concept of conservation of momentum - the product of mass and velocity ; Program 2. Harmonic motion: The restoring force and inertia of any stable mechanical system cause objects to execute simple harmonic motion, a phenomenon that repeats itself in perfect time.
The Mechanical universe. Semester 1 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
A survey of introductory college physics.
