Acceleration

Acceleration

In this episode, we introduce students to the concept that acceleration is a measure of how quickly something changes its speed. We join James Bond as he falls out of an aeroplane without a paracute, splash into the water at 50.4 km/hr with...Show More
Acid/Base Chemistry: Proton Power

Acid/Base Chemistry: Proton Power

This lesson continues the discussion of acids and bases started in Lesson 6. You will learn how to identify the difference between acids, bases, and salts, including their structure, formula, physical properties, and the substances they interact...Show More
Acids and Bases in the Home

Acids and Bases in the Home

This programme familiarises students with the features of acids and bases, and discusses their physical and chemical properties. The pH scale is introduced with examples of strong and weak acids and bases and the concept of neutral substances is...Show More
Ammeter, Voltmeter and Multimeter

Ammeter, Voltmeter and Multimeter

This video explains the uses of the ammeter and demonstrates how they must be connected in a circuit. It also describes how a multimeter can measure different electrical quantities (i.e. current and voltage).
Angle Grinder

Angle Grinder

Competency to operate is vital when using any power tool. This snippet outlines the key safety factors you should know before operating an angle grinder, and during operation.
Applications of Scalar and Vector Quantities

Applications of Scalar and Vector Quantities

Calculating scalar and vector quantities is vital to understanding collisions. Using tennis court action, this clip examines various quantities including initial and final velocity, displacement, acceleration and time. A number of clearly worked...Show More
