ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION

This DVD resource explores how the UK's electricity distribution and transmission network works. It looks at why transmitting electrical energy over large distances involves energy losses and examines how these can be minimised. It explains why electricity is transmitted at very high voltages from power stations to where its needed, how variable transformers are used to maintain constant voltage as demand increases, and the role of circuit breakers both on the national grid and in your own home.

FORCES AND MOTION: THE PHYSICS OF CAR CRASHES

What makes some car crashes fatal and others not? Using footage of crash testing, this resource explores the physics behind car crashes and collisions. It looks at inertia, body in motion, Newton's laws of motion, momentum and conservation of momentum. It then goes on to look at the relationship between kinetic energy, a decelerating force and work.

UNDERSTANDING ELECTROMAGNETISM

From lighting to the Internet, none of this would have been possible without Faraday's work in the field of electromagnetic induction. Made with the help of the Royal Institution this film gives a clear explanation of the principles and concepts behind electricity generation, transformers and motors. It explains electromagnetic Induction and then goes on to look at how Faraday's laboratory models have evolved to become the generators, transformers and motors, that underpin modern society.

WAVES: SEISMOLOGY AND TECTONICS

The most powerful natural mechanical waves and so potentially the most devastating are seismic waves caused by earthquakes. This DVD explores what causes earthquakes and what happens when they occur. It looks at the types of waves created and how they can be detected. This resource provides a clear explanation of P and S waves and looks at how their properties and behaviour differs. It then explains how these differences in velocity, absorption and reflections between the different types of waves in solids and liquids are used for detection and exploration of the earth's core.

PHYSICS OF LIGHT, THE

What is light? How does it operate? What are its properties? Why is it so important to the foundations of our physical world? The Physics of Light examines the nature of light and how it's harnessed in our lives. The basic properties of light and the wave model are explained, while various applications are demonstrated using these facts. We discuss the concepts of wavelength, frequency, speed, reflection, refraction, total internal reflection and dispersion. We investigate the EMR spectrum, the colour of objects, and the addition and subtraction of colours are explained.

PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS 2: SOUND, MAGNETISM, ELECTRICITY AND RADIOACTIVITY

Physics is a science that describes how things work. Almost everything around us can be explained in terms of the principles of physics. With the use of practical demonstrations related to common activities, this program investigates some of the key concepts of physics. Using a drum kit we look at how sound works, how we make it, and how it gets around. We investigate electricity and electromagnetism and compare the similarities between a remote control car and a mobile phone charger. Finally, we take a look at radioactivity and discover a radioactive device that can be found in almost every family home.

EINSTEINS HEROES-NEWTON, FARADAY AND MAXWELL

Dr Robyn Arianrhod, a writer and mathematician at Monash University takes us on a remarkable journey as she traces the connections between the development of electrodynamics by Faraday and Maxwell, and Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity. Along the way, she looks at the roles both mathematics and experimentation have played in establishing these key areas of modern physics.

BUILDING BRIDGES - THE PHYSICS OF CONSTRUCTION

Using physics to build a bridge between design and construction, how we get from point A to B. This Australian-made, curriculum fit program explores how bridges are made, with a focus on the physics used in design and construction. The elements of bridge building are explored step by step, from conception to completion - including factors such as materials used and how costs are governed by environmental, aesthetic and functional elements. These key issues are discussed by Technical Manager Cliff Sagot and Senior Structural Engineer Natalie Balcott from The Robert Bird Group. Their first hand knowledge gives an invaluable look into how these structures bring land and people together but also illustrate the shortfalls of bad design.

CATCHING THE SUN: THE PHYSICS OF SOLAR ENERGY

As the world increasingly focuses on alternatives to the carbon-emitting fossil fuels that we have relied on for over a century, scientists are continually developing more efficient methods to collect the sun, as harnessing solar energy is becoming more and more viable. This program is an excellent introduction to the principles behind solar energy collection and its various usages such as generating electricity, and for heating space and water.

It covers what is solar energy; thermal and electrical uses of solar energy; and catches a glimpse of what the future might look like with current developments that are paving the way for a solar future. The program provides an ideal background for students to research and examine further cutting edge case studies that demonstrate how powerful the potential is for everyday use of solar energy in homes, commerce and industry, and in vehicles.

PHYSICS OF MEDICAL IMAGING, THE

Medical imaging is a critical tool in the diagnosis of health conditions, and therefore in decisions about the most appropriate and effective treatment of patients. This technology has developed at a significant rate in recent decades, and is making possible a whole range of important advances in the way we look after people's health. Behind the technology of medical imagining are a number of important principles of physics, and it is this discipline which has underpinned the advances made in modern health care. This program looks in depth at four kinds of sensing used in medical imaging - Ultrasound, Electromagnetic waves including X-Rays and CAT scans, radioactivity, such as PET or Positron Emission Tomography, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI, which uses electromagnetism.

MODERN PHYSICS: AN INTRODUCTION

The proud history of physics from Galileo to Einstein is surveyed in Part 1 of this 2-part program. Students will learn how physicists like Galileo and Isaac Newton radically changed our view of the universe in the Renaissance. And how physicists like Einstein, Curie and Bohr changed it again the the 20th century.

In Part 2 students will meet some outstanding physicists working today. Included are interviews with Donald Huffman, the physicist who by serendipity discovered how to make buckyballs; Sally Ride, the physicist who was America's first woman astronaut; Don Eigler, the IBM physicist who was the first to move atoms one at a time; and more.
