How Big Is a Proton Anyway? This Decade-Long Debate May Have Just Been Solved

The subatomic realm can be a confusing place, but you would think that we’ve studied atoms long enough to at least understand their most basic properties. Things like how big a proton is. And based on several experiments, scientists had thought they had a pretty good handle on it too. Until an ingenious 2010 experiment […]

Nuclear Power: Fission Basics to Breeder Reactors – TR2016c 3h35m55s28f

Let’s take a peek at a future powered by nuclear! This is a little weird. We can radically cut climate change emissions and leave a safe clean world for the future. We don’t need to invent anything new! We just need to stop wasting time with distractions like nuclear power. Come on! Let’s build the […]

How ELECTRICITY works – working principle

hey there guys Paul here from the engineering mindset dot com in this video we are going to be looking at how electricity works now this is pretty essential knowledge for any engineer so we’ll run through the basic parts of what you need to know so let’s start at the very basics and for […]

Nuclear Reactions, Radioactivity, Fission and Fusion

hey guys its professor Dave, let’s learn about nuclear reactions the electromagnetic force is responsible for the entirety of chemical phenomena. that positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons are attracted to one another is the reason that atoms form, the reason that chemical bonds and therefore molecules form, the reason that those chemical bonds […]

How Solar Energy Is Converted To Electricity Through Solar Panels

Sunlight is made up of tiny packets of energy, called photons. Every minute, enough of this energy reaches the earth to meet the world’s energy demand for a whole year. Photovoltaic panels consists of many solar cells, these are materials made like silicon, one of the most common elements on earth. The individual cell is […]

How batteries work – Adam Jacobson

You probably know the feeling. Your phone utters its final plaintive “bleep” and cuts out in the middle of your call. In that moment, you may feel more like throwing your battery across the room than singing its praises, but batteries are a triumph of science. They allow smartphones and other technologies to exist without […]

How Three Phase Electricity works – The basics explained

hey there guys Paul here from the engineering mindset .com in this video we’re going to be looking at Three phase electricity and this follows on from our series on Electrical Engineering so if you haven’t watched the previous videos on this so far then please do this first links are in the video description […]

Plants vs Solar Panels: Which is better at capturing solar energy? | We The Curious

This is an aquatic plant called pondweed, and we can see that it’s making tiny bubbles of gas. This gas is oxygen and all plants produce it in a process called photosynthesis. The word photosynthesis comes from the Greek meaning ‘light’ and ‘putting together’. Plants use the energy in sunlight to make sugars, out of […]

The Mystery Behind Jupiter’s Powerful Auroras

Jupiter is the king of the solar system, the king has a crown! But, like, what’s it made of? Jupiter, has auroras. We’ve known this for a while, Hubble spotted them. But they’re not regular auroras, they are the most powerful in the solar system. Earth could fit inside this loop. Yeah. CH-YEAH. It’s awesome. […]
