Moving in circles ; Fundamental forces by David L Goodstein( visu )
21 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 137 libraries worldwide
The first program demonstrates how a body in uniform circular motion has both constant speed and constant acceleration. The second program discusses the four fundamental forces that explain all the physical phenomena of nature, the strong and the weak nuclear forces and the electrical and gravitational forces
The Mechanical universe-- and beyond ( visu )
13 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
Program 43 examines Albert Einstein's interest in perfecting the central ideas of physics. Details Einstein's new understanding of the meaning of space and time, including such matters as the transformation of velocities, time dilation, and the twin paradox. Program 44 deals with the formulation of a new mechanics based on Einstein's concept of space and time. Covers relativistic momentum, equations relating kinetic energy and total energy of a particle to its speed, and the relation between mass and energy in special relativity. Program 45 traces the ups and downs of scientific research as reflected in Boyle's experiments and Charles's investigations. New discoveries about the behaviors of gases make the connection between temperature and heat. Program 46 deals with the Carnot engine and the first law of thermodynamics. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
The Electric field ; Capacitance & potential by David L Goodstein( visu )
20 editions published between 1935 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 118 libraries worldwide
Program 29 deals with Michael Faraday's contribution to the modern idea of the field of force. Also covers electric fields of static charges, Gauss's law, and the conservation of flux. Program 30 discusses Benjamin Franklin's theory of the Leyden jar and his invention of the parallel plate capacitor. Also covers electrical potential, the potential of charged conductors, equipotentials, and capacitance. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
Resonance ; Waves by David L Goodstein( visu )
28 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and Spanish and held by 118 libraries worldwide
Explains and demonstrates the properties of waves, including amplitude, period and frequency
The Magnetic field ; Vector fields and hydrodynamics by David L Goodstein( visu )
19 editions published between 1976 and 1990 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 115 libraries worldwide
The first program discusses the relationship between an electric current and the magnetic field it produces, the law of Biot and Sarvart, the force between electric currents, and Ampere's laws. The second program discusses the differences between electric fields and magnetic fields and how both can be better understood by analogy to fields of fluid flow
Electromagnetic induction ; Alternating current by David L Goodstein( visu )
21 editions published between 1976 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 102 libraries worldwide
The first program discusses the discovery of electromagnetic induction which created an important breakthrough in the generation of electric power. The second program discusses the way in which electromagnetic induction makes it possible to generate alternating current while transformers make it practical to distribute it over long distances
