Newton's Laws: Crash Course Physics #5

Season 1 Episode 5 | 11m 03s

I'm sure you've heard of Isaac Newton and maybe of some of his laws. Like, that thing about "equal and opposite reactions" and such. But what do his laws mean? And how do they help us understand the world around us? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini talks to us about just that.

Extras
Shini introduces the idea of Quantum Mechanics and how it helps us understand light.
Let's talk about astrophysics, cosmology and how our universe works.
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?
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!
Shini talks to us about optical instruments and how they make magnification possible.
Light's behavior seems counterintuitive. That is, until you figure out light is a wave.
We've learned about light and how to bend it to our will. But what can we LEARN from it?
