Excellent primer of all things physics for any age!

This is an amazing series taking the viewer through an amazing array of modern physical concepts and understandings. The series takes you from Newtonian classical mechanics to Quantum physics all step by step both through excellent explanation as well as wonderfully rendered and manipulated equations. Here are the topics:

Topics Include: Introduction to the Mechanical Universe The Law of Falling Bodies Derivatives Inertia Vectors Newton's Laws Integration The Apple and the Moon Moving in Circles Fundamental Forces Gravity, Electricity and Magnetism The Millikan Experiment Conservation of Energy Potential Energy Conservation of Momentum Harmonic Motion Resonance Waves Angular Momentum Torques and Gyroscopes Kepler's Three Laws The Kepler Problem Energy and Eccentricity Navigating in Space Kepler to Einstein Harmony of the Spheres Beyond the Mechanical Universe

Static Electricity The Electric Field Voltage, Energy and Force The Electric Battery Electric Circuits Magnetism The Magnetic Field Vector Fields and Hydrodynamics Electromagnetic Induction Alternating Current Maxwell's Equations Optics The Michelson-Morley Experiment The Lorentz Transformation Velocity and Time Mass, Momentum and Energy Temperature and Gas Laws Engine of Nature Entropy Low Temperatures The Atom Particles and Waves From Atoms to Quarks The Quantum Mechanical Universe

It's a wonderful series that begs to be watched again and again.... something you will never tire of.
