Physics Demonstration Films

This series of videos have been produced by the National STEM Learning Centre and the Institute of Physics. They are mostly aimed at teachers and illustrate how to perform simple demonstrations and use particular pieces of equipment. Some topics have versions of the video that could be used with students in the classroom. The topics covered in the videos are:

* Creating a bin-bag capacitor
* Illustrating the movement of particles in Brownian motion
* Demonstrating diffraction using laser light
* Creating a simple electric motor
* Static electricity and charge with an 'electric sausage'
* Demonstrating the process of electromagnetic induction
* Using an electron diffraction tube
* Compressing a gas in a fire piston
* Gravity and the motion of projectiles with the Monkey and Hunter demonstration
* Using an oscilloscope
* Transmission of electricity along power lines
* Using a signal generator to illustrate waves and sound
* Demonstrating thermal conductivity
* Using a Van de Graaff generator
* A simple wave machine

Monkey and Hunter

From the National STEM Learning Centre, this short video illustrates the effect of gravity on a projectile's motion by using a classic physics demonstration called the Monkey and the Hunter. If a hunter fires horizontally at a monkey in a tree, and simultaneously the monkey releases their grip to fall off the...

Thermal Conductivity

These two short videos, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre, illustrate the process of thermal conductivity. The first video shows a demonstration of thermal conductivity using ice, plastic and aluminium blocks. Alom Shaha explains the process involved....
