This edition: Fundamental Forces
“The Mechanical Universe..and Beyond” helps teachers demystify physics by showing students what looks like. Inventive computer graphics illustrate abstract concepts such as time, force, and capacitance. Visits with Newton, Leibniz, Maxwell, and others trace the evolution of theories and challenge students to observe physical processes going on around them.
In this episode: All physical phenomena of nature are explained by four forces: two nuclear forces, gravity, and electricity.
