Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation

I have released my video explaining Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation. Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation explains that there is a gravitational force between all objects. This gravitational force is an attractive...

What is Force?

  My video explaining force is now available. In it I explain the concept of force and the effect forces have on objects through a series of high quality animated experiments. Force...

When the bag fails

Oops this is what happens when a bag holding a lot of apples fails – they fall to the ground with a loud bang. In my new video explaining force I have...

What happened to this wall?

Blender fractured it that’s what! I have been modelling the fracture of a wall for my video explaining the concept of force. For this particular video shot I wanted to demonstrate that...

Working on a spring balance

Hi.  I’m currently working on my next video which will explain how a spring balance measures force.  I will be discussing Hooke’s law as well as elasticity and demonstrate how to create...

The spring of the balance is extended and a force shown on the scale 35

A Newton spring balance

Professor Mac is using this in his experiments to illustrate Newton’s second law of motion. Do you know what it is?  Well it is a Newton spring balance.  The calibrated spring provides a measure...
