The Mechanical universe ... and beyond ( visu )
18 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
Contains introductory physics and traces the drama of scientific discovery using a mixture of archival footage and historical backdrops to introduce the great thinkers of the past from Copernicus to Einstein
Integration by David L Goodstein( visu )
6 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
Program 7, Integration, deals with Newton's and Leibniz conclusion that differentiation and integration are inverse processes. Program 8, The apple and the moon, covers Newton's discovery that gravity describes the force between any two particles in the universe. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
Continental margins ( visu )
3 editions published between 1979 and 1989 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
An indepth look is provided on the geological structure and historical background of the ocean's continental shelf. The effect of the continental shelf on marine life and future evolutionary changes are also discussed

Derivatives ; Inertia by David L Goodstein( visu )
8 editions published between 1985 and 1993 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Program 3, Derivatives, deals with the function of mathematics in physical science and the derivative as a practical tool. Program 4, Inertia, deals with Galileo's efforts to answer questions about the nature of the universe, the development of his law of inertia, and the risks that he took in challenging accepted knowledge of the period. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
Angular momentum by Leonard David Goodstein( visu )
6 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
Program 1. Angular momentum: Angular momentum is a twist on momentum - the cross product of the radius vector and momentum ; Program 2. Torques and gyroscopes: When a torque acts on a spinning object the angular momentum changes but the object only precesses - why a spinning top doesn't topple

11 editions published between 1976 and 1990 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Program 27 is an introductory preview of the world of electricity and magnetism, and goes on to 20th century discoveries of relativity and quantum machanics. Program 28 discusses Coulomb's law and the principles of static electricity. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
The Mechanical universe-- and beyond ( visu )
9 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Contains introductory physics and traces the drama of scientific discovery using a mixture of archival footage and historical backdrops to introduce the great thinkers of the past from Copernicus to Einstein

6 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
The Michelson-Morley experiment: Explains the experiment to detect the ether, the medium that was supposed to be necessary for transmission of electromagnetic waves in free space. The Lorentz transformation: Discusses Lorentz's experiments to detect motion through ether by measuring its effects on the speed of light
Conservation of momentum by David L Goodstein( visu )
3 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
