Matter, Energy, and Entropy
Episode 1 of The Nature of Matter
Starting with a deck of cards tossed into the air, explore the key concepts of matter, energy, and entropy, which are the building blocks of the physical universe. Study examples of these phenomena, and see how they are demonstrated by…
Introduction and Philosophy
Episode 1 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition
In this first lecture, Professor Cardulla explains how any student can find success in chemistry by cultivating a meaningful understanding of the concepts and quantitative thinking operations that underlie this often challenging area of study.
An Odyssey of Ignorance & Greed
Episode 1 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
The Opioid Epidemic is the worst man-made epidemic in the history of our nation. More people die each year from an opioid overdose than in automobile accidents. The statistics are staggering. This episode traces how an aggressive pharmaceutical mass marketing…
The Path to Nuclear Fission - The Story of Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn
The story of two close friends who discovered nuclear fission is told in great detail within the context of both World Wars. This video is as much about role of scientists in political events, social responsibility, and discrimination against women…
Energy and Human Civilization
Episode 1 of The Science of Energy
How much energy is required to power human civilization? What is it that makes our cities, factories, homes, and cars so energy inefficient? How can the average individual affect energy directions? Find out in this overview of how energy touches…
The Structure of Atoms and Molecules
Episode 4 of The Nature of Matter
Understand atomic and molecular structure with the help of a simple analogy: the rooms of a house and the collection of houses in a city. See how the electrons of an atom occupy shells, subshells, and orbitals, which give atoms…
The Nature of Light and Matter
Episode 2 of The Nature of Matter
Trace a scientific revolution that started with a curious observation about light and a seemingly nonsensical explanation. Learn how Max Planck's proposal that energy is related to frequency, and Albert Einstein's application of this principle to light, gave birth to…
Why Carbon?
Episode 1 of Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Start exploring organic chemistry's foundations with a review of the basic science of chemistry (including atomic structure and the periodic table). Then, get an engaging introduction to organic chemistry: its origin, its evolution, its relationship to carbon, and its fascinating…
The Amazing Periodic Table
Episode 6 of The Nature of Matter
Investigate an astonishingly powerful scientific tool: the periodic table of the elements. Delve into the insights that led Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev to construct the first modern version of the table in the 1860s, and explore the world of information…
A New Theory of Matter
Episode 3 of The Nature of Matter
Discover how the idea that light comes in discrete packets called "quanta" led to a startling new theory of matter: quantum mechanics. One prediction is that matter, like light, behaves as both a particle and a wave, a property observed…
Basic Concepts of Quantitative Reasoning
Episode 2 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition
Introductory chemistry is not mysterious: It requires simple quantitative reasoning that comes naturally to most students. You learn about the types of numbers involved in chemistry and how to solve problems commonly encountered in high school chemistry.
Ground Zero
Episode 2 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
Rural America was among the earliest and hardest hit by prescription opioid addiction and overdose deaths. The stories in this episode center primarily in Kentucky, the ground zero of the epidemic. Whole communities have been devastated. Some schools don't hold…
Rocky Road to Recovery
Episode 3 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
This episode shines a light on the plight of the millions of Americans who suffer from opioid addiction. Nearly everyone knows someone or has a family member who is addicted or died from an opioid overdose. On this episode we…
Out from the Shadows - The Story of Irene Joliot-Curie and Frederic Joliot Curie
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 Paris Science Film Festival in France. Using newsreels, family home movies and stills, stock footage, dramatization and interviews, this biography relates the life and times of Irene Joliot-Curie and her husband,…
Energy - Forms and Conversion for Use
Episode 2 of The Science of Energy
Energy is a fundamental part of our universe--in a sense, the universe is energy. Here, Professor Wysession introduces you to the many fascinating forms energy takes, including potential, kinetic, mechanical, and thermal energy. He also explains how energy is measured…
Electricity - Ultimate Energy Converter
Episode 4 of The Science of Energy
Discover what makes electricity such an attractive vehicle for energy. Learn how electricity can come from oil, coal, solar, and other forces, and how electricity travels through wires with the help of voltage. Also, examine recent advances that make it…
The Nuclear Fission Fuel Cycle
Episode 12 of The Science of Energy
Professor Wysession explains how uranium is used to make electricity through the process of nuclear fission, from acquiring uranium-bearing rocks to disposing of leftover nuclear waste. Afterwards, learn some of the upsides of nuclear energy (including its nearly unlimited power)…
The Stellar Atom-Building Machine
Episode 5 of The Nature of Matter
Where did atoms come from? Trace the story of nucleosynthesis--the formation of complex nuclei and atoms. Cover this process from the big bang, which filled the universe with hydrogen and helium, to the events inside stars that produced practically all…
The Science of Nuclear Power
Episode 11 of The Science of Energy
Travel to the subatomic level for a fascinating exploration of how nuclear energy is generated. It's an eye-opening lecture that touches on everything from nuclear fission and radioactive decay to the inner workings of nuclear power plants and the attendant…
The Mole
Episode 10 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition
One of the most important concepts to master in an introductory chemistry course is the concept of the mole, which provides chemists with a way to "count" atoms and molecules. Learn how scientists use the mole and explore the quantitative…
