The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.
Please go here if you want to suggest other nice physics videos, and here if I mistakingly infringed your copyrights. If you understand French, you'll find a huge selection of physics videos in French in my other blog Vidéos de Physique.

What do plastic bags have in common with metal?

In less than 100 seconds, Adrian Sutton explains why metals and plastic bags deform in different but related ways. Visit physicsworld.com for more videos, webinars and podcasts.


Tiny objects levitated by sound

Philip Bassindale, a researcher at the University of Bristol, demonstrates acoustic levitation by creating a “pearl necklace” of polystyrene balls in a standing wave of ultrasound. This video was recorded in connection with a Physics World podcast about the nature and applications of ultrasound, which you can listen to here.

What can Schrödinger's cat teach us about quantum mechanics? - Josh Samani

The classical physics that we encounter in our everyday, macroscopic world is very different from the quantum physics that governs systems on a much smaller scale (like atoms). One great example of quantum physics’ weirdness can be shown in the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment. Josh Samani walks us through this experiment in quantum entanglement.
