The Physics of Heat: Crash Course Physics #22

Season 1 Episode 22 | 9m 15s

Have you ever wondered why we wear clothes? I mean, beyond the obvious. Why does wearing a jacket in the cold keep your warmer? What is happening to all the heat inside your body? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks about the Physics of heat!

Aired: 09/07/16
Extras
Shini introduces the idea of Quantum Mechanics and how it helps us understand light.
Why is e=mc2 such a big deal? And what about this grumpy cat in a box and probability?
Let's talk Einstein and Nuclear Physics. What does E=MC2 actually mean? Why is it useful?
We've all heard of relativity, but what is it? How does it relate to light and motion?
Getting power at home is pretty amazing – and much more complicated than it may seem.
We've talked about how AC circuits change voltage, but let's take a deeper look.
Sunlight, moonlight, torchlight... They all work the same. Let's talk about light!
Light's behavior seems counterintuitive. That is, until you figure out light is a wave.
