Physics Podcasts *suitable for home teaching*
Produced by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), these Naked Scientist podcasts look at physics questions in an accessible and informative manner.
Do bubbles keep your bath warmer for longer?
The Naked Scientists discuss how a layer of bubbles can act as a thermal insulator. The scientists discuss how the bubbles would reduce water evaporation as well as radiation and convection. The bubbly surface may not be the main way that bathwater loses heat. Listen to the investigation that the scientists performed.
Goldfinger versus Goldmember
Which film dominates with their most realistic use of lasers? The Naked Scientists discuss the use of lasers and the science behind them. This includes lasers used for cutting metal panels, medical applications of lasers and how lasers may be developed in the future.
STFC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
