What ho! My name is Tucker Hiatt. I am a physics teacher with 35 years of experience, and I am also the executive director of Wonderfest, the San Francisco Bay Area Beacon of Science. Welcome to Radical Physics. What’s radical — besides our location here in the Gamma Sector of the Milky Way — I’ll

## Types of Force in Physics – Diversity, Meaning, & Measurement (RP5)

RP4 tells us a lot about force, IN GENERAL. Let’s briefly look at a few SPECIFIC forces. Many of these will be considered in detail in later episodes. We are all familiar with the force of gravity. On Earth, gravity gives things weight. It is a force (measured in newtons, as are ALL forces) that

## Symmetry: How Einstein Changed the Way We See Everything.

Einstein was a great hero of mine and he’s played an important role in my life. In many ways I try to write, to model my scientific expositions and style on the early Einstein. For several years I owned and lived in Einstein’s house in Princeton. I was kind of his – in that sense

## Laws vs. Definitions in Physics – Revelation vs. Convention (RP4a)

Back in the second Radical Physics taproot episode, RP2, we learned that speed equals distance divided by time. Wasn’t THAT our first law of physics? No. That was just the DEFINITION of speed; and definitions are not laws. THAT formula just reveals what we MEAN by the word “speed” and by the symbol “v.” That’s

## The Standard Model Of Particle Physics Explained by Fermilab Scientist 2017

As a scientist I love questions the more the better when [I] play a question game with my kids Extra Points are awarded if the questions are tricky and a special bonus is given if the questions are about something entirely familiar but with very deep consequences In fact I almost always lose the competition

## The Strong Nuclear Force

If you’re interested in learning about particle physics, one of the key topics you need to understand are the forces that come into play. For instance, we know of four fundamental forces, gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force. Of these four, we have at least a little familiarity with gravity

## Why we need the explorers | Brian Cox

We live in difficult and challenging economic times, of course. And one of the first victims of difficult economic times, I think, is public spending of any kind, but certainly in the firing line at the moment is public spending for science, and particularly curiosity-led science and exploration. So I want to try and convince
