Lotus gets up early to train for an upcoming marathon. Watch her tackle the infamous heartbreak hill! This lesson will derive the equations of motion for uniform acceleration using a velocity-time graph.
Compounds: Death of a President

Compounds: Death of a President

Introducing Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

From water to table salt, we safely come into contact with countless chemical compounds every day. But compounds can also be deadly. Using Turkish President Turgut Özal’s death and eventual autopsy as real-life context, this video examines the...Show More
Mixtures: Tailings Dam Disaster

Mixtures: Tailings Dam Disaster

Introducing Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

The products of mining—metals, minerals and fuels—are essential to our everyday lives. But the waste by-products from mining processes, called tailings, can be highly toxic. Using the 2014 Mount Polley Mine tailings dam and its catastrophic...Show More

Acceleration-Time Graphs

Physics: Senior Secondary

Dylan gives Lotus a VIP tour of Lexicorp's state-of-the-art facilities. On the surface, she's here to buy stuff, but secretly, she's investigating the link between Lexicorp and the missile launch! This lesson will apply acceleration-time graphs...Show More

Speed-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs

Physics: Senior Secondary

Inmates are escaping the city's jail! While Vector Man rounds up the prisoners, Lotus Lang learns Mark Brent's closest secret. This lesson will utilise speed-time graphs and velocity-time graphs to represent motion.

Distance-Time and Displacement-Time Graphs

Physics: Senior Secondary

Mark Brent's coffee run takes a turn for the worse when he has a nasty encounter with Negative Nancy! This lesson will discover the importance of distance-time graphs and displacement-time graphs for representing motion.

Acceleration

Physics: Senior Secondary

With Pilot Mitchell's help, Lotus Lang continues hunting for clues. Will she strike gold and pick up the lost trail? This lesson will lay the foundations for understanding acceleration and its close relationship with velocity.

Speed and Velocity

Physics: Senior Secondary

While Mark Brent snoozes through his alarms, Lotus Lang is hot on the missile's trail. Can she catch the culprits? This lesson will compare and contrast speed and velocity.
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
Weird Wonderful Water

Weird Wonderful Water

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
