Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety

Shedding Light on Electricity

In "Electrical Safety", we first look at the dangers of electric shocks by actually demonstrating an electric shock. We then look at the safety features built into our homes and electrical devices that keep us safe from electric shocks.
Voltage, Current, and Resistance

Voltage, Current, and Resistance

Shedding Light on Electricity

In this episode, we look at how electrical equipment is designed to use the right amount of current for the voltage supply that it's designed for. After a brief recap on electric current, we look at what voltage is and how it is measured. we then...Show More
Sources of Electricity

Sources of Electricity

Shedding Light on Electricity

In 'Sources of Electricity', we take a detailed look at where our electricity comes from: thermal and hydroelectric power stations, wind farms, and solar farms. We alo examine the advantages and disadvantages of these sources of electricity.
Electric Circuits

Electric Circuits

Shedding Light on Electricity

In the second episode, we examine how lights, switches, and other electrical devices are all connected either in "series" or in "parallel" with each other. How do they wire up the lights in your house so that in some rooms the light switch turns...Show More
Electric Currents

Electric Currents

Shedding Light on Electricity

In episode three, we take a look at what electric current is (it's basically the flow of electrons through a wire) and at how electric current is measured. We then examine the different ways that electric current flows in series and parallel...Show More

Life in the Sea

This programme is about seawater. It is the most important liquid on Earth, not only from its sheer volume, but also because it has remarkable qualities. A few of them, like buoyancy, are common to all liquids - but seawater is also the cradle of...Show More
Newton's Third Law of Motion and Gravitation

Newton's Third Law of Motion and Gravitation

Motion and Its Applications

Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation is equivalent to his Third Law of Motion in the sense that any two objects in the universe attract each...Show More
Properties of an Image Formed by a Plane Mirror

Properties of an Image Formed by a Plane Mirror

A plane mirror forms the image of an object by reflecting the light rays coming from the object. The image formed by a plane mirror is virtual, erect and of the same size as that of the object, such that the object and its image appear to be...Show More
Pressure in Liquids

Pressure in Liquids

Force and Pressure

The pressure exerted by a liquid at a point inside it is directly proportional to its depth, density, and acceleration due to gravity. The pressure exerted by a liquid at points which are at the same level in the liquid is equal. The pressure due...Show More

Gravitation

Gravitation

Gravitation is a natural phenomenon by which all physical bodies attract each other. When we throw an object upwards, it falls back to the earth due to gravitation.
