Just finished filming guest students Anish, Kevin, and Olivia. We had a great time and they did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for being willing to help and for being my first "Substitute Students". Y'all Rock!
Force of Gravity and Gravitational Potential Energy Functions from Zero to Infinity (but not beyond)
Due to the error in the AP Physics C: Universal Gravitation (Mechanics) Video, I had to make this video. It corrects the error and more. Realize it is a complicated AP Physic C: Mechanics problem. Enjoy!
I love this problem. It’s a bit esoteric, but I don’t care because it highlights a common mistake students make.
Would you like to know how fast you need to jump in order to escape planet Earth?
It takes a lot of energy to leave the Earth.
It's that time of the decade again. I donate my hair every 3-4 years. Cut 10" off this time. Sending it to Children with Hair Loss! Donate your hair if you can!!
Everybody’s favorite. Universal Gravitational Potential Energy!
Five years ago I had an idea to make physics educational videos staring three students, Billy, Bobby, and Bo. I dedicated an entire weekend to filming and editing. I can still remember running up and down my basement stairs doing iterations to get the lighting for my students just right. The product of that work was the first three Flipping Physics videos. Five years ago today I posted my first video. Now I have more than 30 hours of edited Flipping Physics videos which have been watched for more than 15 million minutes. Yep, 15 millions minutes, or almost 29 years is how long people have spent learning from my videos. I am very proud. Thank you for all your love and support. I wonder what the next five years will bring?
Are you curious how to define a force of gravity without the mass of the object?
Yep, I make physics videos in the hope that you can learn physics. If you are a physics teacher, I am very hopeful that you will want to use them to help flip your physics class.
