Physics Lens

MinutePhysics as an Educational Resource

As a teacher in a junior college running a 2-year pre-university course, I am often on the lookout for videos that can help me explain some of the more difficult concepts in physics. It is hard to come across videos that communicate scientific concepts in a way that is both informative and engaging.

When I stumbled upon MinutePhysics, a Youtube channel that aims to present a physics concept in roughly one minute, I was delighted. I have been sharing videos from this channel with my colleagues and students since then. The benefit of these videos is that they complement our lectures and help students improve their understanding of specific concepts in a very short time.

Here are just some videos that are relevant to my country’s curriculum. Our students take the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ level Exams. Our syllabus covers topics such as quantum physics (including concepts such as quantum tunneling), nuclear physics, lasers and semiconductors.

On how lasers work:

On quantum tunneling:

On nuclear fusion and quantum tunneling:

On $$E=mc^2$$
