5 Lessons in This Course
7 minPhysics lesson 14 CQ
Wondering how nuclear fusion differs from fission? Discover how energy is produced when two small atoms are fused together and how fusion might be harnessed.
2 minPhysics lesson 22 CQ
In this introductory lesson, review the development of our understanding of atomic structure and basic physics over the last two hundred years.
10 minPhysics lesson 36 CQ
Get ready to discover why some isotopes are radioactive, and what occurs in alpha, beta, and gamma decay. Also, learn to draw and interpret Feynman diagrams!
8 minPhysics lesson 45 CQ
Nuclear fission is what happens in nuclear power stations and atomic bombs. The process for such massive release of energy is covered in the physics lesson!
14 minPhysics lesson 58 CQ
What happens when the nucleus of an unstable isotope breaks down? In physics, this is called radioactive decay, a concept covered in this science lesson!
310 min3-part Physics course7 CQ
In this course from physics instructor Fizzics, discover the importance of understanding the concept of momentum and how it affects the world around us, from collisions to rocket launches.
551 min5-part Physics course28 CQ
Waves transmit information through the air every day, including by sound waves, radio waves, and light waves. In this course, discover fundamental properties of waves and see how they function.
422 min4-part Physics course13 CQ
Understanding the atom is essential to demystifying the secrets of the universe. In this course addressing the history of science, learn all about the concept of atoms, and basic subatomic theory!
545 min5-part Science course25 CQ
Electricity can be mysterious, and hard to understand. This course explains the measurements and concepts of electricity, and teaches beginners about electricity basics like charge, current, and more.
7 minPhysics lesson4 CQ
