michelson morley experiment explained

In this video I review the famous Michelson Morley experiment, what is known as the most famous null result experiment. Although impossible to reconcile with the understating of Physics at the time, it became fully understood in the context of Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity. I use a couple of useful analogies to help you understand the experiment.

Meissner Effect demonstrated (basic)

A video that demonstrates the Meissner Effect. Produced with the Australian HSC in mind. This does abruptly end as I had to remove an erroneous section. Nonetheless, it’s the meissner effect that causes levitation. Any further explanation for the stability of the levitation is Quantum related and beyond the school of a high school student.

X-rays Explained

A lesson on X-rays, and how they are produced. Covered at the depth required for high school Physics.   For students of NSW, this cover the dot points in the Medical Physics elective (9.6) •describe how X-rays are currently produced • compare the differences between ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ X Rays

Understanding PET scans

In this video, I discuss Positron Emission Tomography. In particular, I refer to the source of the positron, its annihilation and how the resultant gamma rays are collected. I also briefly discuss its diagnostic benefits.

Extrinsic Semiconductors Explained

The third in the series on semiconductors, this video explains how doping a semiconductor such as silicon, improves its conductive properties, using band theory model to explain. This video aligns with the NSW HSC syllabus but is applicable to other jurisdictions.

Doppler Effect Explained

A quick explanation of the doppler effect using an animation written by W. Christian at Davidson College. This useful animation to undertaking pitch change in moving sound sources and also how ultrasound (sonograms) can measure blood flow.

NSW Physics review – dot points 9.4.4

The in a series of short videos, I review the dot points in the NSW HSC syllabus. I won’t go into the full details of the physics of each point, but I will touch on them discussing the nuances of each dot point. I this set I review section 9.4 Ideas to Implementation part 4 – on superconductors
