Episode Details

“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: Potential energy provides a powerful model for understanding why the world has worked the same way since the beginning of time.
