Wave physics was the first physics course I took when I started college. It’s considered quite fundamental to any other physical understanding. Light is a wave, sound is a wave, heat is a wave (heat is just light), radio is a wave and so forth. If you understand how waves work, you automatically get knowledge in all of these fields.
That’s why I’m including Introduction to waves as this weeks video.
I want to cover some sort of thermodynamics next week and talk about why an air-pump is a much more effective kind of heating than electricity or burning fuel. However I’ve looked through Khans videos and he has a bit too much on thermodynamics for what I want to cover, so I think I’ll make my own.
Since I haven’t gotten any suggestions on subjects to cover I’m pretty much going to run out of ideas next week, so If I don’t get any suggestions this week or next week I’ll probably have to stop the series. Remember that you can leave suggestions completely anonymous in the comments, you don’t have to register or anything; or even leave your real name.
Without further ado, I bring you Khans introduction to waves:
