Physics is the science of motion and energy. Four segments use familiar examples to show the laws of physics at work in our everyday lives.
  • Roller Coaster Physics: Shows how roller coasters rely on the laws of physics to entertain people.
  • Preventing Disaster: Investigates how engineering practices can cause or prevent fires, sinking ships, and collapsing buildings.
  • The Planet Electric: Explores how electricity is generated.
  • Constant Motion: Examines how gravity and friction affect moving objects.
This program illustrates some of the many ways we study and use this dynamic science.
