Forces and motion videos
Remote teaching support for 11-14 14-16 16-19
A selection of videos to use remotely with your students when teaching about Forces and Motion.
Exploring the different types of force
The effect of friction on motion
Tim Peake's Principia mission to the ISS generated some excellent videos that students of all age groups will benefit from. Others in the series include:
Principia - Spinning ball on a string then released generates a distance / time graph
Principia - Momentum: Small mass into large mass
Principia - Momentum: Large mass into small mass
Principia - Momentum: Two equal mass head on side view
Principia - Momentum: Equal mass inelastic velocity / time graph
This is a video from Veritasium. Other videos from the same source include:
Suport for plotting motion graphs can be found from Science Shorts. This one covers distance-time graphs.
A similar video for velocity-time graphs can be found here.
There are many other videos in the Hewitt-Drew-it collection
The Monkey and Hunter demonstration of projectile motion
Our own IOP Coach, Lewis Matheson, produces some excellent videos on his channel. The playlist on Elasticity includes:
As well as:
- Springs in Parallel and Series
- Energy in Springs
- Stress, Strain and Young's Modulus
- Stress-Strain graphs
- Ductile and Brittle Materials
- Behaviour of Rubber
