James Clerk Maxwell – A Sense of Wonder

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of one of the greatest scientific papers of all time, in which James Clerk Maxwell described his transformative theory of electromagnetism. This 28-minute film celebrates his life, his poetry, his creative genius as a mathematician and scientist and his love of Galloway, told through the journey of poet and writer Rab Wilson and featuring conversations with contemporary scientists, music, poetry and songs.

This film was produced with support from the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation and the Dr David Summers Charitable Trust. Commissioned by Wigtown Festival Company.

How do Magnets Work – Documentary

Magnet – is a product or item that creates a magnetic field strength. This magnetic field strength is unseen however is responsible for the most notable residential property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and entices or wards off various other magnets. A long-term magnet is a things made from a product that is allured and develops its own persistent electromagnetic field. An everyday instance is a fridge magnet utilized to hold notes on a fridge door. Materials that can be allured, which are likewise the ones that are strongly brought in to a magnet, are called ferromagnetic (or ferrimagnetic). These consist of iron, nickel, cobalt, some alloys of rare earth steels, and also some naturally happening minerals such as lodestone. Although ferromagnetic (and ferrimagnetic) materials are the only ones attracted to a magnet strongly enough to be generally taken into consideration magnetic, all various other elements react weakly to a magnetic field, by among numerous other types of magnetism.

The Four Fundamental Forces of Physics : Electromagnetism-Part-1- Electrostatic Force:

Hank reaches the fourth and final of the four fundamental interactions in physics: electromagnetism. In this part, he teaches us about the electrostatic force, which builds up a charge in an object and can travel in the form of an electron stream. Stay tuned for Part II, where he will finish up the series with the magnetic force.
