The Coriolis Effect

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 8 years ago | 00:03:00 | 97203 views

Two demonstrators sit at either end of a rotating platform and toss a ball back and forth. When viewed from the rest frame (when the camera is mounted to the ground), the ball follow a straight line but doesn't reach its target because ...

Physics Demo -- Superconductor

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 9 years ago | 00:00:56 | 59052 views

A bismuth-based superconducting disk sits on a copper base and is immersed in liquid nitrogen. Two small, very strong magnets are placed on top of the superconductor. The magnets levitate due to the expelled magnetic field from the supe...

Physics Demo -- Lenz's Law

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 9 years ago | 00:00:28 | 55560 views

Two bar magnets of the same size are dropped through an aluminum tube and a glass tube. The magnet dropped in the glass tube falls at the normal rate of acceleration due to gravity, but the magnet falling through the metal tube is slow...

Laser Diffraction and Interference

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 8 years ago | 00:02:25 | 43558 views

A laser is directed at an adjustable single slit and then a pinhole and the resulting diffraction patterns can be seen on a screen. A laser directed at two slits spaced closely next to each other creates an interference pattern within...

Adjustable Capacitor with Dielectric

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 9 years ago | 00:02:05 | 40753 views

First, an adjustable parallel-plate capacitor is held at a constant voltage. As the separation between the plates is widened, the electrometer shows charge (or current) flowing off of the plates, while the electroscope shows no change i...
