14 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first program explains Kepler's three laws of ellipses, equal areas and harmony. The second program discusses Newton's understanding and explanation of Kepler's laws
The Magnetic field ; Vector fields and hydrodynamics( Visual )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1987 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first program discusses the relationship between an electric current and the magnetic field it produces, the law of Biot and Sarvart, the force between electric currents, and Ampere's laws. The second program discusses the differences between electric fields and magnetic fields and how both can be better understood by analogy to fields of fluid flow
Conservation of energy ; Potential energy by David L Goodstein( Visual )

20 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first program discusses the fact that energy is never created or destroyed and is always conserved. The second program further develops the principle of conservation of energy with emphasis on potential energy
