Welcome


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.

The Human Body is the Ultimate Physics Laboratory

The Tyndall Lecture by Dr Kevin McGuigan: 'The Human Body is the Ultimate Physics Laboratory' toured Ireland from 20 January - 12 February 2009.  We explore how the same physical principles determine the size of an aneurysm, the characteristic tone of flatulence or the curvature of a David Beckham free-kick.

Using the latest images, movies and demonstrations we see why perspiration is much more socially acceptable compared the cooling methods used by other animal species. A forensic examination of road traffic collisions and the injuries they produce reveal that the physical cause for these is often closely related to one of the roles played by saliva!
